He stayed on at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt as a Chief Medical Resident, overseeing a program of over 160 residents. This was formative year which set the foundation for a career in teaching, simulation, research and administration. He subsequently completed a fellowship in Pulmonary Diseases & Critical Care Medicine at Beth Israel Medical Center in NY. At Beth Israel, he developed his clinical expertise in areas such as advanced bronchoscopy, airway management, and critical care ultrasonography.
Dr. Mathew was recruited to Winthrop-University Hospital, a clinical campus for Stony Brook University School of Medicine. He chaired a Steering Committee which founded a 4,500 sq. ft. state of the art Simulation Center which is host to educational programs for medical students, residents, fellows, attendings, nurses, physician assistants, respiratory therapists and other health care practitioners. He also chaired quality improvement committees which heped reduce central line and urinary catheter related infections. He implemented various cost-saving policies for the Respiratory Care Dept. designed to improve patient care. He was an integral part of the Thoracic Tumor Board at Winthrop, offering advanced bronchoscopic services such as Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS) and Electromagnetic Navigational Bronchoscopy to patients with lung pathology. He received the Attending of the Year award from the Department of Medicine at Winthrop in 2012.

Dr. Mathew's research focuses on critical care outcomes. Areas of interest include therapeutic hypothermia after cardiac arrest, airway management, sepsis, and impact of simulation-based training on education and clinical outcomes.
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.
