Dr. Stephen Teich grew up in suburban New York City, leaving to attend the University of Rochester. Dr. Teich graduated cum laude with a BA in biology and he received his medical training at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY (MD degree), St, Vincent’s Hospital and Medical Center in Manhattan (residency in internal medicine) and the Georgetown/Washington DC program in cardiology (fellowship), privileged to have been mentored by W. Proctor Harvey, MD.  Dr. Teich spent his subsequent practice of clinical cardiology exclusively at Abington (PA) Memorial Hospital, now a branch of the Thomas Jefferson University Health System. He retired in 2016 after 35 years as a cardiologist. 

Dr. Teich has always enjoyed teaching, running the hospital’s cardiology elective for senior medical students both from Philadelphia and out of state for 20 years. Dr. Teich is recognized for his course in electrocardiography, repeated throughout the year, for students from multiple medical training programs. This continues to be offered weekly and voluntarily in his retirement. Awards for teaching have been presented by the hospital residents, the medical students rotating through Abington and by Temple University School of Medicine including the Blockley-Osler Award.  Dr. Teich was named a “Top Doc” in Philadelphia Magazine for his approach to cardiology in the geriatric patient.

Caduceus Academy is privileged to have Dr. Teich as one of our instructors.
