UMF Carol Davila

I was born and grew up in Galati, a port city at the Danube river in Romania. The mathematics program at V Alecsandri High School where I graduated from was second to none in the country and I had the chance to meet and train with medal winners at International Olympiads. Half of my classmates (myself included) decided to pick Medicine for their career and I joined UMF Carol Davila in Bucharest that I completed 6 years later. Following Medical School I applied for Residency and completed Hematology-Transfusion Medicine at Fundeni Hospital. During my residency I started feeling interest toward research that eventually made me decide to join the Byophysics program at The Ohio State University where I eventually graduated after defending my Master Thesis in 2003. Same year I embarked back on the clinical pathway and joined the Internal Medicine Program at Huron Hospital, part of Cleveland Clinic Health System. Following training I have worked in different settings, such as traditional, outpatient and inpatient, outpatient only or inpatient only in Western Kentucky, North Carolina and Syracuse.

After almost 10 years I decided to go back for training at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic Palliative Medicine Program that I completed few months ago. I am honored to bring the skills and knowledge that I accumulated along these years to the Syracuse area and its people and to join the distinguished group of physicians at Hematology Oncology Associates of Central New York. I and my family, my wife, Isabella who is completing her Rheumatology fellowship at Upstate and my son, Gabriel, who is a 7th grade student at Manlius Pebble Hill School enjoy the 4 seasons, specifically the rich Syracuse winters and the gorgeous parks and I am proud to have completed around 40 5-10 k runs in the greater Syracuse over the last 5 years, including the Chilly Chili’s in Cazenovia and the amazing snowshoe race in Highland Forest.
