Biography

     
    Dr. Fulvia Milite graduated from Albert Einstein Medical College and completed her internal medicine internship and residency, including a full year as chief resident, at Einstein’s Weiler Hospital/Bronx Municipal Hospital. She then went on to pursue specialty training in pulmonary medicine and critical care medicine at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. She also trained in sleep medicine at St. Luke’s Sleep Disorder Institute before entering private practice in Westchester, NY, for five years.

    Presently, Dr. Milite is the Associate Director, Sleep Disorders Program. In this capacity, she organizes a sleep program that provides patient care and training for medical students. Dr. Milite is also Medical Director of the Sleep Wellness Center of New York, Minoela, where she is responsible for inpatient and outpatient pulmonary medicine and the teaching of residents and fellows.


Research

Sleep Disorder Breathing

Dr. Milite’s research interests include sleep disordered breathing, specifically as it relates to heart disease and maximizing patient compliance with therapy for sleep disordered breathing. She has coauthored articles addressing respiratory emergency response, radiation-related bronchiolitis and breath-diffusing capacity in emphysema patients. She has also served as sub-investigator of an efficacy and safety study of drotrecogin alpha (activated) in adult patients with early stage severe sepsis, and was a sub-investigator for a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of prophylactic heparin in patients with severe sepsis and higher disease severity undergoing treatment with drotrecogin alpha (activated).

Industry Relationships

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
