Why Choose Montefiore: Become a Part of Our Legacy of Excellence

Our historical commitment to treating underserved communities both here at home and abroad is one reason why faculty, residents and medical students choose Montefiore. Our supports current and future physiatrists who wish to gain a greater understanding of how sociocultural and economic factors can impact the health of individuals and populations by treating patients directly and train physicians in the welcoming countries. Below are notable examples of this type of global outreach and education:

  • Karen L. Morice, MD —along with a resident from our department and family care physician from another facility—spend several weeks a year in a cluster of remote villages in El Salvador, hours away from the nearest physician. Since 2010, she and her colleague have taken care of patients with a host of problems, many of which stem from arduous physical labor in a very hot climate. Dr. Morice has treated many villagers with injections of local anesthetic agents, corticosteroids or peripheral nerve blocks to relieve their musculoskeletal pain and allow them to work more comfortably for longer periods of time.

  • Huma H. Naqvi, MD , has trained physicians in Iraq to treat the high incidence of neuromuscular and musculoskeletal disorders in children that exists in that country. These include cerebral palsy, epilepsy and spasticity. The program is affiliated with the University of Baghdad—College of Medicine and the University of Kufa College of Medicine, is sponsored by an Albert Einstein College of Medicine Global Health Opportunities Grant.
