Reminder: Dean Cohen's Maternity Leave

Re-posted from March 31, 2017:

Dear Pre-health Students,

As many of you are aware, I am pregnant and will be going out on maternity leave shortly after the last day of classes. My last day in the office is this Friday, May 5th.  I will return on a part-time basis at the end of August and return full time in October.

Although many of you are away for the summer and rarely seek advising, I wanted to let you know that the other advising deans in the Dean of Studies Office will be available for general pre-health advising questions. And as always, Melisa Adiram, our administrative assistant, will be more than happy to assist you. Please direct all questions and concerns related to pre-health to our email alias:

To schedule an appointment with a Dean:
Please visit the 'Meet with the Deans' webpage and/or call the office (212-854-2024) to schedule an appointment

I wish you all a wonderful summer! I look forward to reconnecting at the start of next semester. Thank you all in advance for your patience and understanding.

Best wishes,
Dean Cohen

Opportunity: Medical Interpreting Training at St. Lukes!


As a medical interpreter you can make a difference!

The Language Services Department at Mount Sinai St. Luke's has developed a two day training program to enable participants  to acquire basic interpretation skills in the medical setting. Trained volunteer interpreters assist providers to meet the health care needs of our culturally diverse patients.

A trained medical interpreter contributes to better health outcomes, better communication between provider and Limited English Proficiency (LEP) patients, increased clinician and patient satisfaction, and reduced legal risks.

This program meets the requirements of the New York Department of Health and adheres to federal mandates and guidelines on cultural and linguistic appropriate health care.

The training will take place at 

Mount Sinai St. Luke's Hospital 

on Saturday, June 3 and Saturday, June 10 

both days are from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

Enrollment deadline is Wednesday, May 31st.
