Dr. Rosy Thachil, Cardiologist for PAGNY at NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi, foresees a very optimistic future working with PAGNY.
"As a junior attending, this has been an incredible place to learn and grow. As the Associate CCU Director, I have had the opportunity to grow my skills as a physician leader in various capacities, both medical and administrative. Daily, I have the opportunity to take care of high acuity patients, as well as teach residents, students, and fellows. I am also able to work closely with the nursing and critical care departments for our ongoing quality and performance improvement initiatives.
Last year, I also had the opportunity to partake in PAGNY’s Physician Leadership Development program, which advanced my understanding of the leadership skills and approaches necessary for success.
Looking to the future, I hope to help further develop our cardiac intensive care unit in conjunction with our projected PCI program".
She also has some advice for future doctors and residents:
"Medicine is a long and arduous path, but ultimately if you find a hospital, specialty, and practice style that aligns with your values, you will be incredibly fulfilled. It is particularly important to have strong mentorship along the way, and also to pay it forward.
Always give back.
Grow and learn every day, even after medical school and formal training."
