For Dr. Mikhail Kogan, Medical Director of the GW Center for Integrative Medicine, the practice of medicine, much like the rest of his life, has been a journey of great distance across many cultures, with valuable new learning and different perspectives coming at every step along the way. Born in Moscow, Dr. Kogan emigrated with his family while still in his teen years, first to Israel and then to the United States, where he obtained his medical degree from the Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia. He followed a Primary Care and Social Medicine Track Residency in Internal Medicine at Montefiore Medical Center in New York City, and a Fellowship in Geriatric Medicine at The George Washington University Medical Center in Washington, D.C., which led to his joining the faculty there as an assistant professor of medicine in the Division of Geriatrics and Palliative Care. In addition to multiple research and teaching responsibilities at the GW Medical Center, Dr. Kogan currently serves as Associate Director of the Geriatrics Fellowship program and provides geriatric consultations at George Washington University Hospital.
