Stephen Baldassarri, MD, MHS
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine)
My purpose is to help develop physicians who are not only highly skilled, but who embody the highest humanistic qualities of our profession. I enjoy teaching, coaching, and mentoring trainees at all levels of medical training. Prior to joining the YSM Longitudinal Coaching Program in 2023, I have had nearly a decade of experience coaching and mentoring medical students in the Medical Coach Experience (MCE) and/or Interprofessional Longitudinal Clinical Experience (ILCE). For the Internal Medicine Residency Program, I have served in the Mentor-Advisor-Coach (MAC) program since its inception. For the Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program, I provide mentorship and coaching for incoming fellows and assist in their transition to academic faculty positions. It is rewarding and meaningful to participate in and witness the growth of trainees and see them succeed in a wide range of career paths.
