Clinical Responsibilities

Dr. Eileen Hoffman is a Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at New York University School of Medicine. She has been in the forefront of the emerging field of women?s health and sex- and gender-based medicine. She has consulted with government, medical schools, hospitals and the healthcare industry, both domestically and abroad, on the redesign of services to improve women?s healthcare. Dr Hoffman also works with women?s groups to promote their agendas in moving women?s health forward. She has published widely about the need to transform healthcare services and improve medical education to better serve women. As a medical educator, she teaches both medical students and offers continuing medical education for physicians in all specialties. Dr Hoffman was a member of the task force that defined the Clinical Competencies in Women?s Health for medical students. She contributed to the Rand Panel on the Appropriateness of Hysterectomy. Dr Hoffman recently served on an NIH State of the Science Panel to evaluate current data on incontinence and to offer recommendations for future areas of research. Dr Hoffman works with women?s groups and is currently on the advisory board to The Transition Network, a social network that serves women leaving the paid workforce and facing their next phase of life. She also advises Share The Care, an organization dedicated to developing support groups for women overwhelmed by care-giving responsibilities. Dr Hoffman received a Testimonial of Gratitude from NYU for being in the ?honored ranks of those who have devoted themselves to the cause of higher education.? She has been honored by Strathmore?s Who?s Who in recognition of leadership, performance and achievement as a Professional of the year 2010 in Women?s Health. Castle Connelly has chosen her as one of the Top Docs in the New York Metropolitan Area and is one of NY SuperDocs, a listing of the top 5% of physicians in New York. Dr Hoffman is the author of Our Health, Our Lives ? A Revolutionary Approach to Total Health Care for Women, a book that helps women negotiate their care in a system not currently designed for them. She has also authored many peer-reviewed publications on how to learn and think about women-centered health care. Dr Hoffman has a private practice in internal medicine/women?s health. Integrating medical, reproductive and mental health care, she provides comprehensive primary care to both women and men. The integration between all aspects of health and how they interact makes her an excellent diagnostician, minimizing the need for many tests, referrals to specialists and prescription medicine. She focuses on preventive health, often avoiding pharmaceutical treatment. A current focus of her work is the dysmetabolic state that leads to many chronic diseases. Instead of treating the end manifestations like diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease and cancer, Dr Hoffman uses nutritional strategies to decrease insulin resistance, restore vitamin D deficiency and eliminating toxic fat tissue in a sustainable way.
