Robert Cooney, MD
Specialty: Emergency Medicine
Soon after earning his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, Dr. Cooney moved to Pittsburgh to begin his residency at Allegheny General Hospital. During his tenure there, his clinical, teaching and leadership skills set the stage for his selection as Chief Resident. As a member of MMC's Emergency Medicine teaching team, he is excited about the program possibilities. "Memorial offers a wide range of pathology for residents," he said. "And as a young program, the Emergency Medicine residency offers the ability to be innovative with teaching strategies."
