Dr. Fornari focuses on faculty development for the Hofstra North Shore LIJ School of Medicine community of faculty, all professionals who interact with medical students and residents/fellows. As an Associate Dean, she is an active member of the core team planning the curriculum and aligning assessment with learning.
