Assistant Professor

Department of Family Medicine

  • About

The Department of Family Practice welcomed Dr. Eve Faber into the faculty as Assistant Professor in November 1999. In this role, Dr. Faber primarily supports the Residency Program and University Hospital by serving as supervising attending physician for a team of residents whenever they are called upon to see managed care Medicaid patients. Dr. Faber also teaches residents and students, serves as advisor to assigned residents, and rotates as Service Attending for the Family Practice Inpatient Service in University Hospital.

Prior to attending medical school, Dr. Faber worked at a Free Medical Clinic in Washington, DC and later at an attached community residence for mentally ill women. She has maintained an interest in serving the medically underserved and the mentally ill in her practice and in her work with Family Medicine residents.

Dr. Faber was not an unknown quantity to our department, as she had received her undergraduate medical training right here at SUNY Downstate. As a student, she was a regular volunteer for the "Foot Clinic" sponsored by the Department of Family Practice at the Bond Street Homeless Shelter, as well as the Community Health Project in Manhattan. Dr. Faber graduated as a member of AOA in 1996.

Dr. Faber completed a three-year internship/residency program at the University of Maryland in Baltimore. In her final year of residency, Dr. Faber served as Chief Resident, helping to organize lecture and educational series for the residents there as well as coordinating the schedules of a large residency program.

Dr Faber has diverse interests, ranging from Women's Health to Palliative Care. She regularly lectures on end of life issues, pulmonary disease and breastfeeding to our residents and students and has previously served as the department's liaison to the Obstetrics and Gynecology department. As the current Geriatrics Liaison, she is responsible for coordinating the month long rotation for our PGY-2s and the ongoing relationship they have with nursing home bound patients.
