After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Cornell University, Dr. Pamela Merola earned her Medical Degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine. She completed her General Pediatrics Internship and Residency at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia following which she spent a year as an Instructor in the Newborn Medicine Department at Mount Sinai Hospital attending deliveries, caring for well newborns and teaching residents in the Well Baby Nursery. She then went on to complete her fellowship in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at the combined program of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. During her fellowship, Dr. Merola was involved in research evaluating genetic differences that might indicate how a patient may respond to cancer chemotherapy as well as the side effects that might be experienced. After completing her fellowship she was appointed as an Instructor at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center as part of a multidisciplinary team with a special interest in treating children, adolescents, and young adults with sarcomas of the bone and soft tissues before coming to the Mount Sinai Hospital as an Assistant Professor. In collaboration with her colleagues, Dr. Merola’s clinical focus is in the understanding and treatment of pediatric patients with solid tumors such as those in the bone and soft tissues.

In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
