George Jour, M.D.

Class of  2009 – 2013

“Welcome to the endless journey of pathology. You could not have chosen a better place to start! As someone who has trained there, I can tell you that you are about to start not only residency but a unique and fulfilling experience. Yes you will work long hours but once you are done, you will realize that there is no specimen or entity that you haven’t grossed in your training. After your residency, the sky is the limit. Make sure you talk to your faculty, and discuss with them your plans and they will be there for you. You will be able to complete your prospective fellowship with ease, because of the solid foundation you have as a Mount Sinai St. Luke’s-West-Beth Israel resident. Personally, I can tell you not to let anyone discourage you on the path you have chosen. And always be yourself. Do not compromise who you are regardless of the situation; it may be harder but it will be worth it in the end.”

Fellowships: 1) Bone and Soft Tissue pathology, University of Washington, Seattle. 2) Molecular Pathology, Memorial Sloan Kettering, New York.

Current: Fellow, Dermatopathology, MD Anderson, Texas.

Vaidehi Avadhani, M.D.

Class of 2011– 2015

“Congratulations to all of you as you start your journey in this residency program! I am sure you are all as excited as I was when I started. I had a great time during my training. Yes, of course study, but don’t forget you are living in the best place right now. Visit Central Park, Lincoln Center, the Museum of Natural History and all of the other attractions in the city. You will make many memories here. Remember as you begin to work that one of the biggest assets are your co-residents and your chiefs, as well as all of the attendings. And of course, don’t forget to be members of the various organizations in pathology such as CAP, ASCP and USCAP.”

Fellowship: Cytopathology, Emory University

Current: Fellow, GI Path, Emory University

Shweta Gera, M.D.

Class of 2011– 2015

Fellowships: 1) GI Path, NYU, NY (2015). 2) Cytopathology, Montefiore Medical Center, NY.

The four years of my residency was one of the best times of my life. I got good hands on experience, made so many friends and have a lot of good memories to cherish. I have been complimented on several instances, whether it was during my fellowship interview or GI- fellowship, that I had a solid foundation in my residency program. So trust me you are in good hands and make the best out of it.



Kamille West, M.D.

“The Mount Sinai St. Luke’s-West-Beth Israel Pathology program is a challenging but rewarding experience, with diverse cases and teaching styles. Our alumni have done so well in their chosen paths of work and life. Over the years, we learned so much and formed lasting relationships. Most importantly, you get out of it what you put in. So, good luck and embrace the journey!”
