Bio

Alla Kirsch, M.D. is a family physician in private practice. She earned a Certificate in Travel Medicine through ISTM and is the President of Travel Clinics of America. She earned a B.A. degree in mathematics from Barnard College, and a medical degree from the New York University School of Medicine. Dr. Kirsch completed her residency in family medicine at the University of Pittsburgh. Board certified in family practice, Dr. Kirsch is a solo practitioner in family medicine who aspires to the highest ideals of the medical profession. After Dr. Kirsch incorporated travel medicine into her own practice, she envisioned extending this opportunity to colleagues nationwide so they could provide their patients with similar high quality travel consultations, prevention, and care. As a founding member and practicing physician, she is working to expand Travel Clinics of America to meet the challenging and changing needs of physicians and traveling patients alike.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
