Danit Arad, MD

Dr. Danit Arad is the recipient of the 2017 Samuel M. Rosen Award for Outstanding Teaching (Clinical). She is among four Department of Medicine faculty members, including Drs. Liise-anne Pirofsky, Marty Grayson, and Stephen Baum, who received 2017 distinguished faculty awards, which were presented at Einstein's Commencement ceremony on Tuesday, May 23, at Lincoln Center's David Geffen Hall, in New York.

A member of the Einstein faculty since 2009, Dr. Arad is an assistant professor of medicine (Hospital Medicine) and the director of the teaching hospitalist program at Montefiore Medical Center’s Moses campus. She also serves as an assistant firm leader for the internal medicine residency program at Montefiore. Dr. Arad received the Ambulatory Clinic House Staff Award in 2009 and is now a regular lecturer in the ambulatory care rotations. Her research interests focus on innovations in medical education—in particular, the promotion of professionalism and humanism and the development of residents as teachers. Dr. Arad is also a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher of medical students and has taught extensively in the third-year medicine clerkship, the Introduction to Clinical Medicine course and the fourth-year medicine sub-internship. She has served as a clinical skills assessment reviewer of students’ videotaped patient encounters. In 2010, she was invited to direct the sub-internship at Montefiore’s Moses campus and served in this position until 2014. In 2015, she was inducted into the Leo M. Davidoff Society in recognition of her outstanding teaching of medical students. A native of Israel, Dr. Arad received her B.S. degree in 1998 and her M.D. degree in 2004, both from Ben Gurion University of the Negev. She completed her internal medicine residency training at Montefiore Medical Center.
