Tamie Proscia-Lieto, MD, MBA

Clinical Associate Professor of Internal Medicine, Department of Primary Care

For over 20 years I have been involved with medicine and medical education. As a graduate of the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education (BS) / Downstate Medical Center (MD), the importance of primary care medicine for the underserved  was instilled in me from early on. For this reason, I pursued a traditional Internal Medicine Residency Program at Staten Island University Hospital. After my Chief Residency, I remained on as a full time faculty member at SIUH.  I became an Assistant Director of Medicine, a position with many diversified roles including developing a Clinical Practice to serve a community in need and overseeing the medical education of residents and 3rd and 4th year medical students. During this time I was appointed to the academic staff of both Downstate and Mount Sinai School of Medicine. I later trained in Nutrition Support and became a Certified Nutrition Physician Specialist and practiced in a Medical Nutrition Practice. As a strong advocate of quality healthcare, and excellence and professionalism in medicine, I also served as a Peer Reviewer for IPRO.  In addition I received my MBA from Felician College in 2007. Since I really enjoy teaching, I became an instructor of  Anatomy, Physiology / Clinical Nutrition and Biology and served as Faculty at  Eastwick College for Medical Sciences and as the Department Chair of Science at the Immaculate Heart Academy.  In 2011, I joined the Faculty Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine as an Adjunct Assistant Professor for the Physical Diagnosis and OSCE courses.This past year I joined the Touro College as full time Faculty at Middletown to be the Course Director for Physical Diagnosis. I have also been an active member of the American College of Physician and  was nominated and elected  to serve on the Governor’s Council of its New Jersey Chapter in 2013.
