Faculty - Michael Carson

Dr. Carson is a Board Certified Internist who obtained his A.B. from Lafayette College, his M.D. from Temple University, and completed his Internal Medicine Residency and Chief Residency at Brown University. He continued at Brown for a fellowship in Obstetric and Consultative Medicine. Currently, he holds a dual appointment as Professor in the Departments of Medicine and OB/Gyn at Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine. He is on Medical Staff at Jersey Shore University Medical Center.  In addition, Dr. Carson serves as the Director of Research/Scholarly Activity Dept. of Medicine, Raritan Bay Medical Center and is Past President of the North American Society of Obstetric Medicine (NASOM). He is on the editorial staff of Obstetric Medicine, a reviewer for the Annals of Internal Medicine and Women's Health, has co-edited a book on Sex- and Gender-Based Women's Health, published his research regarding improving detection of postpartum dysglycemia after a diagnosis of GDM, and is a leader in educating internists about caring for medical disorders during pregnancy. Past ABC course directors have described Dr. Carson as a person who “KNOWS us OB/GYNs well and is the perfect guy to torture us with primary care and medical complications of pregnancy”. In his words, he takes pride in the fact that his experience as a consultant to OB/Gyns and an educator of physicians allows him to present information, that’s not necessarily in your wheelhouse, in a way that will help you retain what you need to pass the boards and provide excellent care. He is happy to have recruited Dr. Adam Kaplan, a former resident who considers Dr. Carson a mentor, onto the ABC team as an Internal Medicine lecturer.
