Mount Sinai Hospital

Dr. Gillian C. Nesbitt

The Best Medicine

It was during her residency at the Mayo Clinic that Dr. Gillian Nesbitt fell in love with cardiology. Following her adult cardiology residency at the University of Toronto, she returned to the Mayo Clinic for a fellowship and continued to work as a Consultant in the Division of Cardiology and Echocardiography, also known as cardiac ultrasound, where she distinguished herself both in training and practice.

Dr. Nesbitt recently joined Mount Sinai Hospital's Daryl A. Katz Centre for Urgent and Critical Care as a clinician-teacher. Strengthening Mount Sinai Hospital's cardiology programs, especially in the area of cardiac imaging, is a priority for her. Her outpatient practice covers conditions such as arrhythmias, systolic and diastolic heart failure.

"The entire environment of medicine — how we teach it, understand it and deliver it — is changing. As medical education evolves, I see Mount Sinai at the forefront of new techniques and effective strategies to ensure that we continue to foster the training of a new generation of great physicians," Dr. Nesbitt says.
