Dr. Joy Schildkraut Glaser '62

Pediatrician specializing in infectious diseases

Glaser's career began as an intern at Bellevue Hospital Center before her appointment as pediatric resident at Beth Israel Medical Center. At Beth Israel, she became chief pediatric resident, associate attending pediatrician and then assistant attending pediatrician. In 1973 she was appointed instructor of pediatrics at Mt. Sinai Hospital before becoming a clinical fellow in infectious diseases at Montefiore Hospital Medical Center. This rigorous fellowship integrated an intense year-long study of clinical consultations and research concerning Extrahepatic bilary atresia, a disease which affects neonates, and was later recognized by the American Liver Foundation.

In 1987 Glaser returned to Bellevue full time and conducted clinical research concerning congenital syphilis. This research was instrumental in forming hospital policy so that every pregnant woman would have a test for syphilis during pregnancy and at delivery. Formerly appointed professor of pediatrics at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, she currently teaches on a voluntary basis, making Pediatric ID rounds one month a year. She also facilitates the Introduction to Clinical Medicine course-a class designed to teach students to be caring and empathetic physicians.

Glaser maintains active membership in the New York County Medical Society and the New York Ambulatory Care Society. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and a diplomat of the National Board of Medical Examiners. In 1976 she was awarded an Alumnae Association Citation and was the 2000-2001 recipient of the William Smith Alumna Achievement Award.

She currently lives in Rye, N.Y.
