Following a career as a professional dancer, Dr. Ann Danoff completed her endocrine fellowship training at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (NY), under the mentorship of Dr. Norman Fleischer and (the late) Dr. Dennis Shields. She currently serves as Chief of Medicine at the Corporal Michael J Crescenz (Philadelphia) Veterans Administration Hospital, and Vice Chair of Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Before assuming that role ~2 ½ years ago, she served as Chief of the Division of Endocrinology and Endocrine Fellowship Program Director at NYU School of Medicine.
Throughout her career, Dr. Danoff has had an abiding commitment to the delivery of high quality, compassionate care for all, irrespective of social status, race, sexual or gender orientation, founded on a bedrock of basic and clinical science, and infused with humanism. With the hope of being as impactful as possible, she has been actively involved in medical education, with all levels of learners. The Endocrine Society has graciously provided opportunities in which Dr. Danoff could actualize her educational efforts – including permitting her to serve as Chair of Trainee Day, Chair of the Board Review Course, and most recently, Physician-in-Practice Chair of the Annual Meeting (2017 and 2018). Dr. Danoff has also served as President of the Association of Program Directors in Endocrinology and Metabolism (APDEM), and in that role, was a Charter Member of the APDEM/AACE Joint Liaison Education Committee.
