Biography

    Dr. Linker earned her B.A. with Honors in Biology from the Johns Hopkins University in 2005 and attended the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine on a four-year University of Miami Trustee Merit Scholarship, graduating in 2009. Dr. Linker did her Preliminary Year in Internal Medicine at St. Vincent's Catholic Medical Center. From 2010 to 2012 she was the Department's Dermatopathology Fellow, doing a superlative job and publishing nine articles in major dermatology journals based on her research. In 2012, she entered our dermatology residency program and became one of the most prolific and outstanding residents ever to have trained here. Dr. Linkner will sit for her Boards in July 2015 and is licensed to practice medicine in New York.

    An exceptionally bright and hard-working physician, Dr. Linkner received the highest Board score ever recorded by the American Board of Dermatology. In addition to her merit scholarship, she received St. Vincent's Galen Award for Intern of the Month in 2010 and was winner of the Resident Competition sponsored by the Cosmetic Surgery Forum Grant Award in 2011. Most recently, Dr. Linkner earned third place in the Resident of Distinction Competition sponsored by the Winter Clinical Dermatology Conference in Hawaii in 2013.

    A superb writer, Dr. Linkner has co-authored 34 peer reviewed original publications and is first author on 17. She is also first author on eight articles and coauthored seven book chapters and is first author on two. A polished speaker, she has presented at major dermatology venues such as the annual Fall and Winter Clinical Conferences, The International Society of Dermatopathology, the Annual  Meetings  of the American Academy  of Dermatology,   the Cosmetic  Surgery  Forum, and the American  Society  of Laser Medicine  and Surgery.

    From day one Dr. Linkner  has proven  herself to be a rising star in our specialty.  Therefore,  I am especially  enthusiastic  about supporting  Dr. Linkner's   appointment  to the rank of Clinical Instructor  in the Kimberly  and Eric 1. Waldman  Department  of Dermatology  at The Icahn School of Medicine  at Mount  Sinai. She will be a major asset to the Department.
