M. Susan Burke, MD, FACP, is a clinical associate professor of medicine at the Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA, an adjunct associate professor of geriatrics at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Philadelphia, and senior advisor of Lankenau Medical Associates at the Lankenau Medical Center in Wynnewood, PA, where she has been a clinician and teaching attending for more than 30 years. Having earned her medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine (Philadelphia), she completed a residency in internal medicine at Lankenau Hospital (now the Lankenau Medical Center). Dr. Burke is board certified in internal medicine and geriatrics and is a fellow of the American College of Physicians.
A 2-time recipient of the Osler-Blockley Award for Excellence in Clinical Teaching from Thomas Jefferson University, Dr. Burke also has received the residents’ award for best teacher from the Lankenau Internal Medicine house staff. She has been named Best Doctor for Women and, more recently, Top Doctor by Main Line Today magazine. Dr. Burke lectures nationally and has published chapters and articles on numerous primary care and geriatric topics on continuing medical education web sites as well as in publications such as The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association and Annals of Long-Term Care. When not working, she enjoys visiting with family, taking pictures and traveling to national parks throughout the country.
Dr. Burke has been involved with Primary Care Network for many years, developing CME education and presenting at our Best Practices in Primary Care programs. Last year, Dr. Burke was not only a faculty presenter at the Medical Education Exchange (MEDX) regional CME conferences, but graciously moderated the conferences as well.
“My two professional passions are practicing medicine and teaching fellow clinicians. In my resident practice, my goal has always been to present the science and foster discussion while sprinkling useful ‘art of medicine’ tips along the way. Live conferences promote such exchange of ideas on a larger scale. Ultimately, attendees as well as patients benefit from this dynamic interaction.”
