After a year of medical internship at the University of Missouri, Columbia, she received her neurology residency training at Mount Sinai Medical Center, followed by a two-year fellowship in epilepsy/EEG at the comprehensive epilepsy center at Yale University. After her fellowship, she returned to New York to join the faculty at the Ichan School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

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.

Dr. Yoo did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2013 and/or 2014: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company.
