Dr. Caroline Vitale Inducted into the Clinical Excellence Society

On April 27, 2017, the Department of Internal Medicine hosted a ceremony inducting Caroline Vitale, MD, AGSF, Associate Professor of Internal Medicine, into the Academiae Laureati Medici Clinical Excellence Society. The Society recognized Dr. Vitale for exuding and demonstrating clinical excellence among her colleagues and in clinical practice, along with her outstanding citizenship within the Department. Membership in this society will help to foster Dr. Vitale’s ongoing contributions to the educational and clinical missions of both the Department of Internal Medicine and our Division of Geriatric and Palliative Medicine.


“In addition to being a well sought-after geriatrician, Carrie is also known for being an outstanding and compassionate palliative medicine physician. Carrie is known not just for her superb clinical knowledge, but also the gentle and compassionate care she provides to her patients and their families. It is not uncommon that I receive unsolicited notes from patients thanking her for the care she provided for their loved ones towards the end of their life. Dr. Vitale is definitely someone I would be happy to ask to be the physician for my family members”. –Dr. Raymond Yung

Dr. Vitale is one of ten recipients from the Department of Internal Medicine to be inducted into the Clinical Excellence Society.

Please help us in congratulating her on this outstanding achievement!
