Research Bio

Betsy Naumburg, MD, returned to the Family Medicine Program in 1986 after an unsuccessful attempt to escape its powerful magnetism. She attended the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine (MD -'79) and took her residency in Rochester. She was recruited from the west side of town where she practiced for three years at the Woodward Health Center.

Her interests at Family Medicine include the medically underserved, the impact of race, class, and gender on health, health care and medical education and the integration and balance of professional and personal life. She enjoyed a tenure as Residency Director from 1990-1997. She has become very involved at the medical school as an Advisory Dean while still continuing her commitment to residency education.
