Amy Novatt, MD, started her medical career at the New York Veterans Association Hospital in Manhattan where she worked as a clinical liaison in psychopharmacology research. She then matriculated at New York Medical College, graduating in 1990.
It was during a medical clerkship in medical school that she decided to pursue a residency in obstetrics and gynecology. This field of study combined her fascination for the science of the female body with her interest in the social and political status of women in the world.
She completed her residency in ob-gyn at the Reading Hospital and Medical Center, a community based program affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania in 1994, and spent a year teaching residents from both institutions.
After this teaching experience she opened a private practice. She spent five years enjoying the mysteries of delivering babies and then discovered she had an intense interest in the field of gynecology and decided to focus her practice on women through all their transitions, from pubescence to mid-life and through menopause.
She now practices gynecology in the Hudson Valley of New York, where she spends time with patients focusing on individual wellness and healing strategies, incorporating conventional therapies with complementary modalities. She sees her patients as partners in the healing process and relishes the intricacies of the individual and her way of life.
