About Beth Rachel Hochman, MD

After growing up in South Florida, Dr. Hochman received her B.A. in biochemistry from Harvard College, magna cum laude. She then interned at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland, and the U.S. Department of State in Washington, DC, before completing her medical degree at Columbia College of Physicians & Surgeons.

She remained in Washington Heights for her general surgery residency training at New York Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center, during which time she served as co-administrative chief resident in general surgery. She then completed fellowship training in trauma and surgical critical care and was an Instructor of Surgery at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

Dr. Hochman's clinical interests include the full spectrum of trauma, emergency surgery, and surgical critical care, and she will be attending both on the Acute Care Surgery service and in the Surgical and Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Units. She is also highly interested in medical student and resident education, including international medical opportunities. To date, she has participated in medical educational opportunities in Peru, Chile, Sweden, India, and Kenya.

Though she has published in a variety of clinical sources and completed Clinical Research Certification at the University of Pennsylvania Center for Clinical Epidemiology & Biostatistics, Dr. Hochman's research interests lie in collaborative efforts in translational medicine, having recently served as a clinical fellow in the BIOLines Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS).
