    Dr. Cheung joined the Charles B. Wang Community Health Center in 2004 after completing her Internal Medicine residency at St. Vincent’s Hospital and Medical Center. Her long-term patients were underserved with multiple economic, language, and cultural barriers. During her six years at the health center, she also participated in outreach efforts related to Hepatitis B and other Preventive Care screening, and provided culturally sensitive care alongside a multidisciplinary team. Dr. Cheung was also the center’s EMR Physician Champion, and spearheaded efforts to transition to a new EMR system, to improve the efficiency and quality of care, allowing the center to eventually achieve a Level 3 Medical Home designation.
    In 2011, she transitioned into the hospital setting after joining Beth Israel Medical Center’s Asian Services Program, which was the only dedicated Asian inpatient unit in New York City. As a Hospitalist, her other major responsibility was to teach and supervise resident doctors.
    In 2013, Dr. Cheung took on her next challenge as a Clinician Educator at Beth Israel Medical Center. In this role, she has been able to give more attention to teaching resident doctors during their ambulatory sessions at Ryan Nena Community Health Center. She also gives regular conferences about core medicine topics to the residents, as well as oversees Journal Club, where residents critically analyze articles pertinent to primary care. Dr. Cheung also sees her own patients at the Beth Israel Medical Group office in Greenwich Village.
