Dr. Sheryl-Tulin Silver Receives Physician of the Year Award


Pediatric interventional radiologist Sheryl Tulin-Silver, MD, was this year’s recipient of the NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital Physician of the Year Award, which recognizes physicians annually for their outstanding leadership, patient care, and collaboration.

"We are thrilled that Dr. Tulin-Silver has been recognized with this award by NewYork-Presbyterian,” said Lawrence Schwartz, MD, James Picker Professor of Radiology and chair of the Department of Radiology at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. “Dr. Tulin-Silver's commitment to teamwork and collaboration, paired with her skill as a physician, has led to the high level of patient care we provide at the children’s hospital.”  

Dr. Tulin-Silver is an assistant professor of radiology and an assistant attending at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. She joined the department in 2017 and is currently the director of pediatric interventional radiology and a member of the multidisciplinary Vascular Anomalies Program at Columbia.

Physicians are nominated for the award by the hospital nursing staff each year and selected by the Recruitment, Retention, and Recognition Committee based on their contributions to nursing practice, ease of collaboration with nurses, and recognition of the impact of nursing practice on patient outcomes.

“Dr. Tulin-Silver has been fostering the kind of physician-nurse relationships that every doctor should strive to attain, and every nurse is grateful to have,” said Sarah Cicero, BSN, RN, CCRN, who submitted the winning nomination. “Not only does she enhance patient experience, but she makes going into work each day fun.”

Dr. Tulin-Silver is the only female interventional radiologist at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and the first member of the Department of Radiology to receive this award.

Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital is one of the nation’s top children’s hospitals and one of the largest providers of children's health services in the tri-state area.
