Medical Education Outlook: Dr. Steven J. Scheinman, TCMC President
This month, The Commonwealth Medical College (TCMC) welcomes its new President and Dean, Steven J. Scheinman, MD. Dr. Scheinman brings with him academic credentials and leadership skills to further enhance the future of medical education in NEPA. Most recently, he served as professor of medicine and pharmacology at SUNY Upstate Medical University and previously served as its senior vice president and dean of the College of Medicine, overseeing its academic, research and clinical programs and broadening the regional presence for the Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Health Professions and Graduate Studies. In his 30 years as a faculty member at Upstate, Dr. Scheinman spent 10 years serving as chief of the nephrology division in the department of medicine and was influential in doubling the size of the faculty and expanding the dialysis program.
Dr. Scheinman has published more than 80 peer-reviewed articles, reviews and book chapters on topics related to kidney disease and genetics. He has served on review boards for the National Institutes of Health, American Society of Nephrology, American Federation for Clinical/ Medical Research, American Heart Association and National Kidney Foundation. He is a fellow of the American College of Physicians and of the American Society of Nephrology and an elected member of the American Society for Clinical Investigation. Dr. Scheinman was a gubernatorial appointee to the New York State Council on Graduate Medical Education and has served on a number of national medical education boards. While at TCMC, he will continue to serve on the board of the National Resident Match Program.
Because of his experiences in medical education leadership positions, Happenings Magazine interviewed Dr. Scheinman on his thoughts and vision for the future of medical education and health care in NEPA.

Dr. Steven J. Scheinman, who resigned as dean of Upstate Medical University's medical school in October, has been named president of a Pennsylvania medical college.
Scheinman will become president and dean of Commonwealth Medical College in Scranton, Pa. on Sept. 10. The college, which this coming spring will grant its first medical degrees, has about 640 students.
Scheinman stepped down as dean at Upstate the same month that an accrediting organization recommended that Upstate's medical school be put on probation because of concerns over its curriculum and other issues. Scheinman remained on the Upstate faculty.
Scheinman, a veteran professor and researcher at Upstate, was named dean at Upstate in 2004 replacing Dr. Michael Roizen, a nationally known, best-selling author.
Commonwealth college officials said Scheinman was selected to run their college after an extensive national search.
"Dr. Scheinman emerged as an exceptional leader with a strong and broad vision to advance the college's educational, administrative, and research activities in exciting new ways," said Louis DeNaples, chairman of the college's board of trustees.
Scheinman said in a news release he's excited to lead the college.
Scheinman, professor of medicine and pharmacology at Upstate, earned international prominence for his research into the genetics of inherited kidney diseases and kidney stones. He taught at Upstate for nearly 30 years, and for a decade served as chief of the nephrology division in the department of medicine. While in that role, the size of the faculty doubled and the dialysis program expanded.
During his eight years as dean at Upstate, the college created a masters in public health, established two new departments, and reached a historic high in research funding. He appointed 15 of the 25 department chairs in Upstate's College of Medicine, including the first six women ever to serve in that position.
Scheinman graduated from Amherst College in Massachusetts and received his medical degree with honors from Yale University. He completed his residency in internal medicine at Yale-New Haven Hospital; was chief resident in internal medicine at Upstate; and completed fellowships in nephrology at Upstate Medical Center and Yale-New Haven Hospital.
He is board-certified in internal medicine and nephrology, and has been an attending physician at University Hospital, Crouse-Irving Memorial Hospital and Veterans Administration Medical Center in Syracuse.
