Born and raised in Queens, NY, Dr. Sicular is a street-smart public school-educated New Yorker, with everything that comes with that background except for the heavy accent. He graduated from Columbia University and earned highest honors and his medical degree at Sackler School of Medicine. He trained in Radiology and served as Chief Resident at our illustrious Mount Sinai Medical Center, where he also served on the Medical Board as well as 2 years as President of the Housestaff Council.
As Director of Emergency Imaging, Dr. Sicular strives to promote the quality of diagnosis and treatment of acutely ill patients using medical imaging technology, and to advance teaching and research of Emergency Imaging. Dr. Sicular also serves as Course Director for both the Step 1 and Step 2 Board Review Courses at Mount Sinai Medical School, where he has a passion for teaching both pre-clinical and clinical medicine.
Dr. Sicular is well known for his exuberant optimism, and takes nothing too seriously except the care of his patients. Dr. Sicular is proud to continue in the footsteps of his eccentric great uncle, Dr. Arthur Sicular, a famed esophageal Surgeon who treated patients at Mount Sinai from his days as an intern in 1953 until his death in 1998.
Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. 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.
