Dr. Eiss received his MD from Georgetown University School of Medicine in 2008 and completed his internal medicine residency in 2011 and geriatric fellowship in 2012 at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. He was recruited to serve as the Quality Improvement/Patient Safety Chief Resident for the Department finishing his fellowship and in this role, he launched several important initiatives in both inpatient and outpatient sign-out and helped change the structure of the daily resident schedule so that night float residents stay for morning rounds to reduce unnecessary handoffs and add an additional educational opportunity to that rotation. He is currently working on a quality improvement initiative on the inpatient wards to institute a multidisciplinary “discharge timeout” to reinforce crucial changes made to a patient’s medication regimen and aspects of follow up in hopes of reducing unnecessary readmissions and improving patient satisfaction. As the sole member of Weill Cornell Internal Medicine Associates with formal geriatrics training, he provides residents with lectures on geriatric medicine in the outpatient venue and is interested in expanding exposure to geriatrics to residents during their outpatient medicine rotations as well as developing a “Geriatrics Resource Center” and tracking outcomes after implementation.
