Research & Publications
Dr. Possick attended Yale University School of Medicine and continued at Yale to complete both a residency in Internal Medicine in 2005 as well as a fellowship in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine in 2008.
She is the Medical Director of the Winchester Center for Lung Disease and leads the Comprehensive Pulmonary Medicine Program, which forms the foundation of the Winchester Center's pulmonary consultation practice. She is also a member of the multidisciplinary Thoracic Oncology Program at Smilow Cancer Hospital, focusing on treatment-related complications and pulmonary comorbidities in patients not only with lung cancer, but with other solid tumor malignancies as well. In 2020, she founded the Post-COVID Recovery Program, which provided evaluation and support for survivors of SARS-CoV-2 infection with persistent respiratory symptoms or complications through 2023. This program, which collaborated with colleagues from cardiology, neurology, psychiatry, physical therapy, and social work, provided the foundation for both the Long COVID Consultation clinic developed in General Internal Medicine as well as the Post-ICU Clinic in WCLD.
Though her practice remains diverse, she specializes in the evaluation and management of the complex pulmonary problems encountered by individuals undergoing treatment for malignancy, particularly pulmonary toxicities related to immunotherapies, targeted therapies, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy, as well as the management of pulmonary comorbidities in the setting of lung cancer.
Beyond this focus, she is committed to improving patient/caregiver health literacy, improving transitions of care, and fostering multi-disciplinary collaboration in the care of the multi-morbid population with chronic lung disease. She precepts in the teaching clinic at the WCLD and is devoted to enriching the ambulatory pulmonary curriculum for the PCCSM fellows and IM residents.
