Touro’s Lander College of Arts and Sciences
New York Medical College, Pediatric Resident
Rochelle Rubinstein graduated New York Medical College and began a residency in pediatrics at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center. Though excited about her future in medicine, it took her some time to decide on her career goals. As an undergrad, she chose Touro for its large selection of majors, giving her time to explore her interests and see where her passion lies. “I chose medicine because I wanted to help people improve their health. The human body is fascinating, and people are as unique on the inside as they are on the outside. I appreciate the humanism aspect that as a doctor you have an opportunity to help people truly improve their quality of life on a personal level that’s unlike any other profession,” she says.
When it came time to apply for medical school, Rochelle appreciated that New York Medical College has a high success rate of graduating doctors with a strong preclinical curriculum and clinical experience. As she thinks about her future, Rochelle is hoping to pursue a fellowship in cardiology when she completes her residency.
