Susan C. Mirabal, M.D.

GIM Fellow

Our GIM MedEd division is truly one of a kind. Our multidisciplinary team, led by caring, nurturing and compassionate physician-mentors, is redefining what it means to deliver patient-centered care.


I am passionate about improving medical education thru thoughtful and deliberate teaching, coaching, and mentoring. As a general medicine physician, I am committed to providing culturally sensitive medical care to diverse populations.  

Before embarking on my medical career, I was a plant physiologist, avid oil painter and novice baker. After finishing medical school at the University of New Mexico, I moved to New York and completed my Internal Medicine residency with a focus on Community Medicine.  

As a recent NY transplant, I am enjoying the beautiful landscapes that Baltimore has to offer and am excited to get back to oil painting.  Also recently hooked on cycling and rowing.

I can usually be found at the local farmers market with my husband and young son.
