We are pleased to announce the appointment of Mary Pierre as clerkship coordinator of the Department of Medicine’s Division of Education and Residency, effective Monday, May 16. She has replaced Pam Cohen in this role.
Mary comes to us from Emory’s Department of Anesthesiology, where she has served as senior administrative assistant for the chair and medical director since 2011. Prior to her most recent role, she served as an ETS administrative assistant, providing executive administrative support to Emory leadership and the director of the Center for Comprehensive Informatics. She has also held a variety of administrative assistant and office manager roles at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center and NYU Medical Center in New York. She has a bachelor’s degree in health care administration.
Mary will report directly to Steven Doney and work closely with our clerkship directors, Drs. Richard Pittman, Karen Law, Michael Lubin, and Eva Rimler. She will play a significant role in preparing the programs for accreditation and compliance with accreditation standards, events planning and coordination, and maintaining required record-keeping and databases pertaining to the medical student programs. This position supports the clerkship directors for the junior medical clerkship, ambulatory clerkship, and senior medical clerkship elective. Mary joins an outstanding education program staff and will work closely with the education leadership team to ensure that Emory continues to be a top institution for GME and UME programs.
Please join us in welcoming Mary to the Department of Medicine.
The department also welcomes Mercemari Toyens-Nieves, our new Division of Rheumatology administrative manager. We thank Wendy Carter for her years of dedicated service and wish her a happy retirement.
