About Dr. Grossman


As a trained emergency medicine physician and cardiologist, I focus my teaching and research on cardiology in the emergency department setting. My research centers on developing evidence-based data for the management of cardiac emergencies, while my administrative responsibilities as associate director of health care quality reflect this evidence based approach as well. In this vein, I spearheaded the development and continue to direct the Clinical Decision Unit and Cardiac Emergency Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
