Alumni Association Lifetime Service Award - Robert Bernstein, M.D. ‘60

Dr. Robert Bernstein is a member of Einstein’s second graduating class. Following graduation from the College of Medicine, he interned at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and then completed his residency in radiology at The New York Hospital, where he was chief resident. He then served in the U.S. Army as chief of radiology – and the only radiologist -- at the “Fighting” 33rd State Hospital, in Bremerhaven, Germany. In 1966, upon returning to the States, he also returned to the Bronx, joining the radiology department at the newly opened Hospital of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He was named chief of radiology in 1969 and served in that role until his retirement in January 2002. In 1983, he was elected as a Fellow of the American College of Radiology. Despite the title of professor emeritus, Dr. Bernstein returned to work that same August, to read the plain “film” images and continue his teaching responsibilities. His son Steven followed in his footsteps, graduating from Einstein in 1989, and is now an interventional radiologist in Norwalk, CT.
