Alexander Samuel Dash

Alex came to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai from Macalester College, where he majored in Biology and was a varsity baseball player for all 4 years. Before attending Icahn, Alex worked as a research assistant for 2 years at the Hospital for Special Surgery, helping to establish the new metabolic bone disease research program under Dr. Emily Stein. He entered the MD program in 2019.

While at Icahn, Alex participated in the East Harlem Health Outreach Partnership, the ISMMS student-run free clinic (EHHOP) as a Nutrition Counselor, Chronic Care Senior and Senior Clinician. He was a mentor and curriculum chair in the MedDOCs program, teaching high school seniors from underserved high schools in NY on various medical topics and was a member of the PORTAL or dual MD/MSCR program.

Alex would like to thank his family, friends, and the many faculty members at Sinai who have made his medical education extremely rewarding and have given him the space to succeed and pursue his dreams of becoming an orthopedic surgeon.

Alex will graduate with his dual MD/MSCR degree and continue his residency training in Orthopedic Surgery at Columbia University Medical Center.
