Overview and Educational Background
A 1967 graduate of the New York University School of Medicine, Dr. Stephen M. Levin, M.D. is currently an Associate Professor at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. In addition, he serves as an Associate Professor in the Department of Community and Preventive Medicine and co-director at the Mount Sinai Irving Selikoff Center for Occupational and Environmental Medicine, a internationally acclaimed facility that acts as a diagnostic referral center for populations exposed to environmental hazards, including asbestos, silica, lead, and other toxins.
After receiving his medical degree, Dr. Levin continued his education by completing three separate residencies, one each at Bellevue Hospital, St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center, and Mt.

Clinical Research and Affiliations
Dr. Levin's clinical interests include asbestos-related diseases (like peritoneal mesothelioma and pericardial mesothelioma), occupational asthma, carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive strain injuries and musculoskeletal disorders. All of these are disorders or diseases that may be associated with environmental or occupational hazards. His keen interest in mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases has prompted his invitation to speak at many public and professional events, including Asbestos Awareness Day International. In addition, he has written numerous articles about asbestos exposure and other occupational hazards and many of his research grants have been supported by NIOSH, the National Institute for Occupation Safety and Health.
Following the World Trade Center attacks of 2001, Dr. Levin served as the Director of the World Trade Center Worker and Volunteer Medical Screening Program, which provides examinations to those who served as responders to the tragedy of 9/11 as well as residents, volunteers, and survivors who may have been affected by the toxins released into the air on that tragic day and the months that followed. His knowledge of the after-affects of the attacks has prompted multiple invitations to lecture and provide useful information on the subject. In addition, Levin has authored and co-authored many papers and articles on this topic as well.
