JUST DESSERTS will feature Prof. Maria Padilla Wednesday, May 11 Annenberg 22-90 4PM
Maria Padilla, MD Professor of Medicine and Director of the Advanced Lung Disease Program at Mount Sinai is "pure Mount Sinai": she earned her MD and did her internship, residency and fellowship (Pulmonary Medicine) at Mount Sinai.
She was the founding medical director of the program in Lung Transplantation at the Mount Sinai Medical Center and also developed a program in Advanced Lung Diseases at the North Shore University Hospital. She is a principal investigator on several multicenter therapeutic trials in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and Sarcoidosis. Her clinical research on pulmonary fibrosis, lung transplantation, sarcoidosis, and pulmonary hypertension has been funded by the NIH and also biotech companies.
Dr Padilla has a very active pulmonary practice in these and related lung diseases and is a highly regarded teacher as well. She has lectured and published extensively on multiple aspects of pulmonary and critical care medicine and has co-authored books on respiratory disorders and web-based continuing medical education programs. Her excellence in clinical care, clinical research and education have been celebrated by several awards, including an Academic Award from National Institutes of Health, Mount Sinai teaching awards, Physician of the Year Award, Distinguished Service Award, the Saul Horowitz Jr. Memorial Award, the Alexander Richman Award, the Jacobi Medallion and she has been repeatedly named one of the Best Doctors.
Just Desserts with Maria is your chance to ask, "How did you decide on this career path? How do you pick your subspecialty? How do you recruit your team members? Do you have time for non-career interests? For your family?"
Sponsored by the MSSM Office for Women’s Careers, Just Desserts is an opportunity to spotlight an outstanding MSSM women physician or scientist in an informal setting. (Also we serve fruit and chocolate which we think are fine desserts.) It's your chance to hear how a successful path is charted and also to ask questions about career, life and all those other things that don't get covered in formal presentations. It's also a chance to network with about 30 other women MSSM faculty - when do you get a chance like that? This is the sixth in a series featuring a leading MSSM women physician or scientist. Earlier sessions with Mary Sano, Terry Krulwich, Miriam Merad, Penny Asbell and Patrizia Casaccio were terrific. Please join us on the second Wednesday of the month during 2011 - and rsvp to file://x-msg/::233:email@example.com Best regards,
RSVP required. Please include your name, your current position and your department send to: firstname.lastname@example.org
