Dr. Kanevsky studied Film at Northwestern University before coming to New York to attend the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. After graduating, she stayed at Mount Sinai to complete the Internal Medicine Residency.

Since then, she has been a teaching hospitalist, initially at Montefiore in the Bronx and then at Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, before moving back to Montefiore to serve as an Associate Program Director of the Internal Medicine Residency Program for seven years. She was recruited to become the Program Director at Mount Sinai/Elmhurst in June 2021.  Her academic interests are in Graduate Medical Education, Palliative Care, and Quality Improvement.

Dr. Kanevsky has lectured nationally on topics such as pre-internship curriculum and bedside rounding. She has received Teaching Hospitalist of the Year awards at both Lutheran and Montefiore. She is board-certified in Internal Medicine and in Hospice and Palliative Medicine.

When not at the hospital, she can usually be found picnicking in Prospect Park or hiking in the Hudson Valley with her husband, three kids, and their pedigreed mutt Sasha.
