The Department of Medicine extends sincerest gratitude to Robert Sidlow, M.D., M.B.A., Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine (General Internal Medicine) and Assistant Professor of Neurology, for his extraordinary service as Interim Chair at Jacobi Medical Center/NCB.

"Rob and I have had a productive and collegial working relationship during the interim period, and he has done a great job of stabilizing and further improving the Department following Dr. Stephan Kamholz's departure to Maimonides," said Dr. Victor Schuster, Chairman of the Department of Medicine.

Dr. Sidlow joined the Department of Medicine at Jacobi as a clinician educator in the Division of General Internal Medicine in 1998, and since 2003 he has served as the Deputy Chief Medical Officer for the North Bronx Healthcare Network (Jacobi Medical Center and North Central Bronx Hospital.) Deeply committed to hands-on and patient-centered clinical care, he established the Palliative Medicine service in 2007 and has served as its director since then. In 2008, he assumed responsibility as Vice Chairman for the Department of Medicine, a role in which he helped develop a wide variety of patient safety and clinical/system/quality improvement efforts which have been central to the Jacobi Medical Center enterprise.

Beginning in May 2013, Dr. Sidlow was appointed as Interim Chairman of Medicine. He has served as Chair for the Committee on Appointments and Promotions at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and he currently is a member of Einstein’s Institutional Review Board. Dr. Sidlow is the proud recipient of the Leo Davidoff Award and Teacher of the Year Award, and he is a devoted educator, mentor, and role model for housestaff and medical students in the Department of Medicine.

Dr. Sidlow is a Diplomat of the American Board of Internal Medicine and a Fellow of the American College of Physicians. He was recently nominated and ratified to serve on the subspecialty Board of Directors of the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Dr. Sidlow completed his undergraduate as a Max Stern Scholar at Yeshiva University in New York, and in 1995 earned his medical degree at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. He completed a residency in Internal Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, and later earned a M.B.A. from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

Dr. Robert Faillace has been selected as the new Chair of Medicine, and will assume the position in April 2014 from Dr. Robert Sidlow, who has served as Interim Chair since May 2013.
