Dr. Jeff Sternlicht, M.D., P.A. C.E.P.
Dr. Sternlicht grew up in Long Island, NY. After graduating with Distinction in Research in 1994 from SUNY Downstate, he completed a residency in Emergency Medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, VA in 1998. Immediately following residency he became an emergency department attending physician at Greater Baltimore Medical Center (GBMC), where he was appointed Chairman of the Department in 2007. While at GBMC, he developed an interest in disaster preparedness at the hospital level based on events such as 9/11, SARS, Katrina, and H5Nl influenza among others; this resulted in his establishment of the hospital's emergency preparedness committee which he co-chairs. Dr. Sternlicht completed FEMA's Healthcare Leadership Course in 2005. In spring of 2009, all the preparation for a community health disaster was tested as the HlNl pandemic reached Maryland. During the spring and fall, the hospital initiated "Code Yellow" and Dr. Sternlicht was the Medical Director for the HlNl response.
