Professional Summary:

Sucharita Paul is an experienced emergency physician who has made community service, disease prevention, and public health education the center of her career and a focus of her volunteer work. She has practiced in clinical and academic settings for over 20 years and is currently an attending physician and assistant clinical professor at Buffalo General Hospital Emergency Department. She has been involved in several public health initiatives and is currently leading efforts to identify and advocate for vulnerable older adult patients in local emergency departments in western New York. She trains emergency medicine residents in exploring areas of public health including leadership/advocacy, global medicine, the opiate crisis, gun violence, health disparities and social inequities in medicine. She has earned an MPH from the University of Buffalo. Her interest in serving disadvantaged and low-resource communities has led her to become involved in local and regional philanthrophy as well as international emergency medicine work in Vietnam and India.

Dr. Paul’s previous and current board service includes: Health Foundation of Western and Central New York (HFWCNY), COVID-19 Working Group of Western New York, UBMD Emergency Medicine, the Carole Fenton Memorial Fund (founding member), and the City of Buffalo Emergency Medical Services Board. She is also an oral board examiner for the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM).

When she is not saving lives and stamping out disease and trying to make the world a better place, you can find her singing in the local community chorus, trying to keep up with her 100 year old Bavarian house and exploring Buffalo's many restaurants, cultural events and art venues.
