    Assistant Residency Director

    University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry

    Dr. Rotoli is the Assistant Residency Director of the Emergency Medicine residency at the University of Rochester. Through local and national experiential didactics, simulation, and formal assessment, he seeks to improve provider cultural awareness by increasing awareness of the needs of vulnerable populations (especially the culturally Deaf community). Recently, Dr. Rotoli has become the Director of the Deaf Health Pathways, a medical student elective at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. Through this role, he hopes to have a positive influence on students early in their careers in caring for Deaf ASL users, who are a linguistic and cultural minority. He hopes to continue to improve Deaf patient health care delivery and medical knowledge through providing direct access and communication to an ASL fluent physician while working clinically in the emergency department at Strong Memorial Hospital.
