Dr. Jennifer Harley is the Chief of the Gastroenterology and Hepatobiliary Diseases Division, the Director of Endoscopy, and the Fellowship Program Director at NYC Health + Hospitals/Metropolitan. She is also an Assistant Professor of Medicine at New York Medical College.
In honor of Women's History Month, we had the opportunity to interview Dr. Harley on her experiences as a physician and why she chose PAGNY. Here's what she said.
PAGNY: Why did you choose a career in Gastroenterology at PAGNY and NYC Health + Hospitals/Metropolitan?
Dr. Harley: I have been fortunate to be at PAGNY and NYC Health + Hospitals/Metropolitan for 16 years. I did my Gastroenterology Fellowship training through New York Medical College and Metropolitan was one of our rotating sites in the program.
I officially walked through these doors in 2004 and decided to make a career here. It was a great decision as I thoroughly enjoy what I do and the community, colleagues, and support PAGNY has given me.
PAGNY: What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Dr. Harley: The most rewarding aspect of my job is advocating for my patients and being there for them in their time of need.
I treat all of my patients like family, and believe they deserve the best!
Dr. Harley embodies what it means to be PAGNY physician, as she is passionate about advocating for and providing care to some of the most vulnerable patients in New York City. Thank you, Dr. Harley, for serving the NYC Health + Hospitals/Metropolitan community for the past 16 years!
