About Gabriela Magda, MD

Gabriela Magda, MD is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care and a faculty member in the Lung Transplant Program at Columbia University Medical Center, where she works as a transplant pulmonologist and intensivist. Dr. Magda completed her undergraduate studies with honors in both Neural Science and Journalism at New York University. She obtained her medical degree from Tulane University School of Medicine. She completed her internal medicine residency at Georgetown University Hospital and her pulmonary and critical care fellowship at New York University. During her final year of training at New York University, she conducted research on small airway abnormalities in lung transplant recipients at the Andre Cournand Physiology Laboratory at Bellevue Hospital Center, and was a core member of the team of intensivists in the medical intensive care unit at Bellevue Hospital Center during New York City's initial surge of COVID-19 in the spring of 2020. Dr. Magda then completed an additional year of specialization in Advanced Lung Diseases and Transplant Pulmonology at University of California, Los Angeles, the largest lung transplant program by volume in the western United States, where she also worked as an attending intensivist during Los Angeles' second surge of COVID-19 in the winter of 2021. Dr. Magda was born in Brooklyn and raised in Queens by immigrant parents and is the first member of her family to have attended college and medical school. She is thrilled to be back in her home city and apply her broad clinical expertise to help patients with advanced lung diseases for whom lung transplantation is a therapeutic option. She strives to infuse her clinical practice with humanism and a holistic mindfulness of what is at stake for her patients and their loved ones. Her research interests include infections and outcomes in lung transplant recipients. Her other academic interests include integration of humanities in medicine, and mentorship of women and underrepresented groups in academic medicine. She is a member of the American College of Chest Physicians, the American Thoracic Society, and the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation.
