Dr. Vafa Tabatabaie received her medical degree from Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences in Tehran, Iran. After several years of research on thyroid cancer in Toronto, Canada, she came to Montefiore in 2007 as a researcher in the Division of Endocrinology under the direction of Drs. Norman Fleischer and Martin Surks. She graduated from the Internal Medicine Residency Program in 2011, during which her enthusiasm and teaching skills were recognized with the Award for Outstanding House Officer in Internal Medicine, and she completed the Endocrinology Fellowship Program in 2013. She joined the Einstein Montefiore Division of Endocrinology faculty later that year.

Dr. Tabatabaie is Director of the Fracture Liaison Service at Montefiore Medical Center. Her clinical research interests include endocrine issues in the elderly, especially metabolic bone disease and osteoporosis, as well as thyroid cancer.
