Michael J. Dowling
President and Chief Executive Officer
"Thank you for your interest in the North Shore-LIJ Health System. We recognize there are many health organizations and practices for physicians to consider as their home and we look forward to welcoming you into ours.
At North Shore-LIJ, we believe that a true partnership with our physicians-whether clinical, academic or administrative in nature-is the cornerstone of our commitment to quality, patient-centered care. I'm proud of our rising reputation for clinical excellence, as evidenced by the National Quality Forum's National Quality Healthcare Award we received last year, and our sharp focus on clinical innovation and research. With our renowned Feinstein Institute for Medical Research and the new Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine, there's no end in sight to the advances in medicine we can make together.
There are numerous things that distinguish this organization from others, not only in the region, but nationally. Our success in strengthening perinatal safety, reducing hospital-acquired infections and other quality improvements have already set us far apart from other healthcare organizations, and we're continuing to tackle others that will help move medicine forward. In fact, we're now working with internationally renowned Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) on a strategic partnership to test new ways of preventing, diagnosing and treating sepsis, as well as explore ways of improving end-of-life care. And this is just the beginning.
It's a new day for practicing medicine. As a physician here, you will have a unique opportunity to shape these outcomes, and so much more. I invite you to explore our opportunities and hear from some of our own talented physicians who have leveraged their clinical expertise and personal goals, and the resources and opportunities here to carve out highly successful career paths.
Thank you again for your interest."
Larry Smith, MD
SVP, Dean Hofstra North Shore-LIJ Medical School
"As dean of the new Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine, I am now even more excited about the future of medicine.
The Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine welcomed its first class of 40 medical students in the summer of 2011, and offers a curriculum based on today’s cutting-edge thinking in medical education. We believe it will turn out the "new physician" - one who is uniquely well prepared for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead within the transformation of healthcare. To be part of this kind of change is a once in a lifetime opportunity and one that we're embracing full force.
I see our medical school as a groundbreaking avenue for North Shore-LIJ to write a new chapter in medical education history. Our students will learn in teams and will be encouraged — as has not been the case traditionally — to see themselves as ‘fail-safes’ for one another. With our hands-on learning approach supported by our Corporate Learning University, the Center for Learning and Innovation (CLI), we offer state-of-the-art education that is unmatched in the region. Through our sophisticated Patient Safety Institute with medical simulators to reflect real-life patient situations, our students will be challenged and pushed to their limits.
I know we will make great things happen and we're excited about what the future holds. You can learn more about what makes North Shore-LIJ a best-in-class organization and now academic leader, here."

North Shore-LIJ serves more than seven million people in the New York metropolitan region and is rapidly emerging as a leader in delivering innovative, life-changing care. We are committed to achieving our vision of healthcare transformation, as evidenced by our $400 million investment in Electronic Medical Records, our new initiatives to change our patient care model with a greater focus on wellness and prevention, and our partnership with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) to reduce sepsis mortality and improve end-of-life care.
Wherever you look throughout the North Shore-LIJ Health System, you’ll find clinicians collaborating to positively impact patient care and the patient experience. Our collaboration with The Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare has our team focused on solving critical safety and quality issues such as improving handoff communication, reducing surgical site infections and preventing heart failure hospitalizations, among numerous other areas. Our physicians are key partners and leaders working to accomplish this and so much more.
There’s no end to the amount of positive change we can impact on our patients—learn more about career opportunities at a game-changing health system like North Shore-LIJ.

"I have been a physician with North Shore-LIJ for 17 years, beginning in 1994 as director of the medical intensive care unit. Since then, I have had the opportunity to help create a state-of-the-art palliative care unit and robust palliative care program which provides excellent research opportunities and recently received accreditation for a Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship. I am originally from Madison, Wisconsin, and my husband and I are raising five children who are now between the ages of 7 and 15 years old. I always thought I’d go back to Madison, but we ended up having all five children at North Shore University Hospital and now live just five minutes away…so much for returning to the Midwest!). Having a large family has forced me to establish a healthy work-home life balance. I often bring my kids to the hospital with me on the weekends while I make patient care rounds and they do their homework – it may be non-traditional but it’s worked well for us, and the health system has nurtured this balance.
North Shore-LIJ offers many opportunities for physicians to be involved in cutting-edge research and make a tangible impact on patient care. In addition to the new Medical School, perhaps one of our most exciting initiatives is the creation of the Committee for Women in Academic Medicine that will evaluate and promote advancement in academic rank, mentorship and salary parity for women faculty. In my experience, one of the greatest benefits of working for such a large, yet nurturing health system has been the continued growth and advancement throughout the span of my career."

"When I look around I see that there are so many opportunities for physicians to be involved in cutting-edge research; to teach interns, residents and fellows; and to serve a diverse community. I’m especially excited about the new medical school – I’m a member of the Admissions Committee and will have the chance to teach students there as well.
I have been a physician here for four years, but my relationship with the health system goes back to when I was a junior volunteer in high school! I’ve always loved this area, and think it’s a wonderful place to live and raise a family. The kids enjoy the local beaches and the parks; and my husband and I love the theatre and dining in Manhattan.
In short, there really are so many great reasons to be a physician at North Shore-LIJ, including the opportunity to be part of one of the largest and fastest growing health systems in the country!"
Tochi Iroku-Malize, MD
"I have been a physician with North Shore-LIJ for 12 years beginning with my residency at Southside Hospital in 1999. When I was in medical school, a family member and physician who is affiliated with Southside knew of my interest in public health and recommended I train in the hospital’s Family Medicine Residency Program. Clearly, it was a great decision because now, 12 years later, I am the Director of that same program. I’m originally from Brooklyn, but have lived, schooled and worked internationally in Nigeria, England and Trinidad & Tobago, to name a few. With its close proximity to Manhattan, my husband and I decided to make Long Island our home and raise our three children here. Our family is very active in the community—the kids and I belong to a local dance school and they also take karate lessons with my husband. Over the years we have enjoyed spending time with other families of physicians in the health system, and watching our children grow together.
As a physician here, I am closely tied to clinical research and the implementation of sharing best practices amongst our healthcare teams. I believe it is a key component to improving the quality of care that we provide for our patients. I’m excited about the initiatives at the new Medical School, especially in my area of Family Medicine. Having a department of family medicine allows our incoming physicians to see the importance of primary care within the health system and regardless of the specialty they eventually pursue, how all members of the healthcare team can work together to provide safer, quality care for our patients in our community which is part of our charge as physicians.
Although the health system is large, the sense of community among the physicians here is very intimate. Throughout my experience in the health system, there have been a number of members of senior leadership willing to mentor and help me—overall there’s great opportunity for growth at North Shore-LIJ."

"North Shore-LIJ has been extremely supportive in helping me to build the practice that I wanted within a highly sophisticated and technologically advanced department. I am the Medical Director of North Shore-LIJ Imaging at Great Neck and the chief of musculoskeletal imaging for the North Shore-LIJ Department of Radiology. In these roles I interpret diagnostic imaging studies performed throughout the health system and perform both diagnostic and therapeutic minimally invasive procedures, as well as do research, give lectures and teach residents, fellows and medical students. I decided to build my practice here after the great experience I had during my residency at North Shore University Hospital beginning in 2003.
North Shore-LIJ's reputation for academic excellence is unparalleled in the region, evident in the great residency, fellowship and research programs. The remarkable new Hofstra North Shore-LIJ Medical School builds on this reputation, allowing for an increased focus on education and research that will carry throughout the entire health system. I have had the opportunity to participate on committees to build courses and create curriculum for the school. The creation of the medical school as well as the continued development of new programs through the use of technology and support of excellent allied health staff demonstrates the willingness of the health system to make investments in their physicians to ultimately improve patient care.
My wife and I enjoy raising our family on the North Shore of Long Island and taking advantage of all that it offers. In the summer we love to spend time on our boat in Manhasset Bay and to cheer on the New York Mets at nearby Citi Field. In the winter we often take our two young children to visit some of Manhattan’s famous museums and landmarks, just a 35-minute train ride away. I'm an avid runner and am training for my fourth marathon. One of my favorite things about Port Washington is my training runs that take me along the scenic shorelines and wooded roads in the area. This is truly a great place to live and work."
Tony Philip, MD
LIJ Medical Center
"When I first visited North Shore-LIJ as a medical student, I was drawn in by the encouraging working environment; the staff I met treated each other like family. Now, I too am a proud member of that family as I start my 7th year at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in the Hematology-Oncology Department. After finishing medical school in Western New York, I wanted to return to my roots on Long Island, and raise my family in the same place that I grew up. With 2 young children, my lifestyle is centered around them and things that they enjoy. Our family likes to attend the free concerts and shows performed across Nassau County. I am constantly discovering more about Long Island and its hidden gems. There are sprawling parks, world-class restaurants and first-rate shopping across the area and when in doubt Manhattan is just a quick 30 minute drive.
One of the things I am most excited about right now is my involvement in the new medical school. I like that I have the opportunity to help shape the program from the ground up, all while I’m growing professionally. Throughout the entire health system there is a strong emphasis on leading the way with our clinical trials, and I am currently involved in developing a Sarcoma clinical research program. In my time here, I’ve watched the health system grow and have realized how much it values its employees input to shape and guide the future of the organization."
