When you or a loved one fall acutely ill and need all the resources of a major academic hospital to come together to help, Dr. Adam Ackerman is there to step in. Dr. Ackerman specializes in the management of complex medical conditions warranting admission to the hospital. “I enjoy the challenge of diagnosing and treating severe illness while forming personal healing connections with patients and their families,” he says.
Ackerman joined Yale New Haven Hospital’s Hospital Medicine team in 2015 after serving as an active-duty physician in the United States Air Force. In 2009, he received his MD from Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts, where he was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. Dr. Ackerman furthered his training with an Internal Medicine residency at the U.S. Air Force’s Keesler Medical Center in Biloxi, Mississippi.
As part of the Hospitalist Medicine team, Ackerman sees patients at both the York Street and Saint Raphael Campuses of Yale New Haven Hospital. He remains active in research and in teaching internal medicine residents and students as an Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine in the Yale School of Medicine. Dr. Ackerman’s team employs advanced medical knowledge, experience, and technology to maximize accurate diagnosis and rapid treatment. “If a diagnosis requires evaluation by a subspecialist, the depth and breadth of available expertise available to us at Yale is truly amazing,” he explains.
Dr. Ackerman is a member of the American College of Physicians.
