Yale Practice October 2011
In the marathon, the first runner over the finish line used to receive little more than a laurel wreath. In the long-distance race known as the implementation of the electronic medical record, Yale Internal Medicine Associates expects to receive a considerably richer prize—the ability to provide better patient care.
When it was time to select a specialty, Peter Marshall, MD, MPH, had little doubt. A significant family history of asthma steered him toward pulmonary medicine. Caring for patients with respiratory failure during his residency sparked his interest in critical care medicine.
In addition to his clinical responsibilities, and his medical director role in medical billing, Dr. Copel will now represent YMG in such areas as addressing patient complaints and developing an effective disclosure program with Yale-New Haven Hospital Risk Management.
Every year in the fall, Yale Medical Group welcomes a new group of talented, highly specialized physicians from academic centers around the country and the world. This year is no exception. These doctors help to round out the practice by adding expertise in a variety of fields.
