MATCH: Alum Creates “Saving Lives” App, Matches in Family Medicine

March 17, 2017

Ross University School of Medicine alumnus Michael Nemirovsky, MD, (Ross ’15) from Brooklyn, NY, has pre-matched into an unopposed Family Medicine residency at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center, in Utica NY, where he will start his residency on July 1, 2017. Recently, he created the idea and storyboard for a CPR game application which he titled “Saving Lives” and presented it at the 2017 International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare Conference Serious Games and Virtual Environments Showcase and Arcade. He received the runner-up award for the best in show for the student category. 

Dr. Nemirovsky, who earned his undergraduate degree from Hunter College in NY, with a major in biochemistry, is currently a Patient Safety Fellow at St. John’s Episcopal Hospital in Far Rockaway, NY, where he also did all of his third year clinical rotations as a student. During his tenure at St. John’s Episcopal Hospital, Dr. Nemirovsky not only found his desired career path of Family Medicine, he said, but he also discovered a new interest in teaching. In his capacity of being a Patient Safety Fellow, Dr. Nemirovsky worked on building a new simulation lab, and created educational curriculums for various departments in the hospital.

“Going to Ross and working as a Patient Safety Fellow has not only given me a strong foundation in medicine but has also helped me develop a strong work ethic and discover interests such as teaching that I never knew I had,” Dr. Nemirovsky said.
