About Christie Lech, M.D.

Born and raised in New York City, Dr. Christie Lech was first drawn to emergency medicine through her work with a local community volunteer ambulance corps during her high school and college years. She received her undergraduate degree from CUNY Honors College at Queens College, and earned her medical degree from New York Medical College.


Dr. Lech completed her residency at Mount Sinai Hospital, where she was Chief Resident. During her time there, she continued her medical school research into looking at barriers into HIV testing in emergency departments both locally and abroad. After her residency, Dr. Lech joined the NYU Langone Department of Emergency Medicine at Bellevue Hospital. For three years, she served as the assistant residency director and then as the interim residency program director. While there, she completed her master's in health professions education (MHPE). Her thesis focused on the design, implementation and evaluation of a novel debriefing program in the emergency department.


Dr. Lech's professional interests in medical education include organizational analysis, program evaluation and remediation. She is also interested in clinical debriefing, peer support and workplace violence.
