Welcome to The Doctor’s Tablet from Albert Einstein College of Medicine about  medical education, research and health policy.

This blog, written primarily by Einstein faculty, staff and students provides a space for our authors to share observations and insights from the front lines of medicine and translational research. They provide  a unique glimpse into how the students are taught, diagnosis are made,  patients are treated,  therapies are developed and what it takes to provide quality, compassionate health care.
