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.
