David Muller, M.D., is Dean for Medical Education and the Marietta and Charles C. Morchand Chair in Medical Education at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City.[1] Additionally, Muller is Associate Professor of both Medicine and Medical Education, as well as senior advisor and co-founder (with Drs. Ramon Murphy and Philip J. Landrigan) of The Mount Sinai Global Health Center, a division of The Mount Sinai Medical Center dedicated to finding evidence-based solutions to global health problems.[2][3]

In 1996, Muller co-founded the Mount Sinai Visiting Doctors Program, now the largest academic physician home visiting program in the country.[4][5][6]



Muller was born in 1964 in Tel Aviv, Israel. He received his B.A. from Johns Hopkins University in 1986 and his M.D. from the New York University School of Medicine in 1991. Postdoctoral training included an internship and residency in internal medicine at The Mount Sinai Medical Center, where he was Chief Resident from 1994 to 1995.

Muller joined the faculty at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine in 1993. In 2004, he was named associate professor of medicine; in 2005 he was named dean and associate professor of medical education. In September, 2005, he was named Chairman of the Department of Medical Education.

Muller’s Visiting Doctors Program was conceived in 2005 as a response to the concern that the demands of residency training were creating a breed of physicians who needed to be reminded that "patients are people, not biochemical analyses."[4] The program, the largest of its kind in the United States, services approximately 1,000 homebound elderly patients annually[7] and trains approximately 200 medical students, residents, and fellows annually in the provision of home care.[6]

Muller holds a dual citizenship in Israel and the United States.
