Julie Rothstein Rosenbaum, MD, is an internist and general practice physician who considers primary care to be the most exciting medical specialty because it allows her to treat patients for everything from common ailments to rare diseases. “Most importantly, I can really get to know my patients over time, and learn how to best work with them to keep them healthy and well,” she says.
Working at the Yale New Haven Hospital, Saint Raphael Campus Adult Primary Care Center, Dr. Rosenbaum says, “our team wants to get to know each of our patients for the people that they truly are, as this is what allows you to provide the best possible care. I have learned so much about life, experience and resilience from the patients I have served,” she says. “It has been a true honor.”
An associate professor of medicine (general medicine) at Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Rosenbaum is also a medical ethicist. She writes about and educates trainees on various topics in medical ethics, health policy and advocacy.
