Professional Interests

Priti Mishall, M.D., has been an educator at Einstein since 2008 in the Clinical and Developmental Anatomy (C&DA) course and the Medical Histology course, both of which are integral components of the first year medical school curriculum.   Dr. Mishall is the co-course director of an annual workshop, which includes didactic and hands-on training on the clinical anatomy of the eye, for the ophthalmology residents at Montefiore Medical Center.  She is also involved in other pre-clinical courses such as the clinical case conferences for the Disease Mechanisms and Neurosciences course at Einstein.  Dr. Mishall is a member of several administrative committees, including the Instructional Strategies and Professional Development Design Committee. She is an active member of American Association of Clinical Anatomists and International Association of Medical Science Educators.

Dr. Mishall earned her medical degree at Grant Medical College, Mumbai, and completed her residency in Human Anatomy at Seth G. S Medical College and K.E.M Hospital, Mumbai. She received her postgraduate certfication in Medical Education (PGcertME) at University of Dundee, UK. She is interested to create e-learning modules for students and faculty to enhance teaching and learning. Her research interests are in the areas of medical education and anatomical variations.  In the area of medical education, she develops training modules to enhance procedural skills for medical students. Currently she is coordinating the suturing module for students in the C&DA course.  In the Medical Histology course, she uses the online, interactive learning tool Quizlet to develop learning sets to review histology. In the area of anatomical variations, her research interests focus on the extra hepatic biliary apparatus and its clinical significance. She also mentors first year students who publish research articles on cadaveric variations.

Dr. Mishall was appointed an Assistant Professor at Einstein in 2013. Dr. Mishall is inducted in the Leo M. Davidoff Society that recognizes distinguished, caring and committed teaching of Medical Students of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.  In 2017, she was elected as a Harvard Macy Scholar and attended the program for Healthcare Educators - Transforming your teaching for the digital age. She was invited to teach University of Oxford’s summer course, “The Principles of Clinical Anatomy”. In addition to her teaching, research and administrative pursuits, Dr. Mishall enjoys creative writing and routinely contributes to the Einstein literary magazine Ad Libitum.
