(AUGUST 17, 2015) Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) will formally install Jay S. Feldstein, DO, as the College’s eighth president and CEO in an inauguration ceremony on Thursday, Sept. 17. Dr. Feldstein assumed the presidency on July 1, 2014, succeeding Matthew Shure, PhD, who had served as the College’s president and CEO since 2001.

During his first year at the College, Dr. Feldstein worked with members of the PCOM community on its main campus in Philadelphia as well as its satellite campus in Suwannee, Ga., to create the PCOM 2020 plan, a five-year strategic plan that will drive the College’s growth both physically and academically.

An alumnus of the PCOM class of 1981, Dr. Feldstein holds an impressive record of success in healthcare management. Prior to joining PCOM, he served in several senior executive roles at AmeriHealth Caritas Family of Companies, overseeing the health plan activities for hundreds of thousands of at-risk members in the Northeast and Midwest. He also served as a senior director at Aetna; as medical director at Concentra Health Center; as president and CEO at Occupational Health Resources, Inc.; as founder, president and medical director at Spectracare Occupational Health Services; and as a physician and board member at Doctors for Emergency Services.

Dr. Feldstein earned his bachelor’s degree from Penn State University and his doctor of osteopathic medicine degree from PCOM. He completed his residency in emergency medicine at the Medical Center of Delaware and his internship at JFK Hospital in Stratford, New Jersey. He is board certified in emergency medicine and occupational medicine and is a fellow of the American College of Preventive Medicine.
