Dr. Diamond graduated from the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital Neurology Residency program in 2011. He remained there for a fellowship in Sleep Medicine. He then traveled to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center for an additional fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology, with an emphasis on electroencephalopgram (EEG) studies, where he stayed on for two more years as faculty. Following a brief foray into private practice on Long Island he realized his true passion was academic instruction and fostering the next generation of medical students and residents in the neurological sciences.

He returned to the field of education by joining Mount Sinai Icahn School of Medicine in 2016 as a neurohospitalist for the Mount Sinai West, Mount Sinai Morningside, and Mount Sinai Hospital locations. He treats a wide variety of clinical conditions in the inpatient setting, including epilepsy, compromised cognitive function, multiple sclerosis and other inflammatory disorders, and neuromuscular disorders such as myasthenia gravis. He has a particular interest in the neurologic symptoms following traumatic brain injury. He currently serves as the Neurology Clerkship Site Director for Mount Sinai Morningside and Mount Sinai West Hospitals.
