AMERICAN FRIENDS OF RABIN MEDICAL CENTER hosted The Cohen Family Reception to welcome Dr. Pablo Codner, Rabin Medical Center Exchange Visiting Fellow in Invasive Cardiology.

Yvonne Cohen and American Friends of Rabin Medical Center presented the Abraham & Yvonne Cohen Cardiac & Medical Research Exchange Fellowship award to Dr. Pablo Codner on February 25, 2015 at the Harmonie Club. Each year, the Cohen Rabin Fellow program presents a prize to a worthy Rabin fellow who best represents the spirit of innovation and medical care to foster new frontiers in global medicine in medical research and care.  The Cohen family and their closest friends came out to honor the memory of the late Abraham “Barry” Cohen z”l as well as to congratulate the recipient of the 2015 Abraham & Yvonne Cohen Cardiac & Medical Research Exchange Fellowship, Dr. Pablo Codner. Dr. Codner will conduct his fellowship in invasive cardiology at Columbia University Medical Center.
Dr. Codner is a Cardiology fellow from Rabin Medical Center where he is under the guidance and supervision of the renowned Chairman of Cardiology, Professor. Ran Kornowski. Pablo was born in Argentina and was raised in a small Jewish community in Mendoza. Pablo attended medical school at the public university and at the age of 27, he made “Aliyah” to Israel. During his first years in Israel, he served the Israeli Defense Forces as a medical officer. He is married to Carolina, a skilled veterinarian and mother of his three beautiful daughters: Noa, Emma, and Adi. They currently live in near Netanya in Central Israel.
Dr. Codner joined Rabin Medical Center in 2007 as an internal medicine fellow and he has been a resident in Cardiology since 2011. For the past few years he has been coordinating a dedicated outpatient clinic specialized in the selection and follow up of patient before, during, and after Transcutaneous Aortic Valve Replacement, a novel treatment technology which has saved the life of thousands of persons in Israel and in the world.

Thanks to the generosity of the American Friends of Rabin Medical Center, Dr. Codner participated in a short observership program at the prestigious Heart-Valve Center of the Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York. This program together with the unconditional support of his mentor, Professor. Kornowski allowed him to be accepted for a highly competitive interventional cardiology fellowship program at this program. Professor Kornowski proudly stated, “As the chairman of the Cardiology Department at Rabin, I would like to assure you that this award will be well served and Pablo is about to obtain outstanding training in one of the best cardiology institutions in the world.” Dr. Codner’s program will start June 2015. Pablo is convinced that this program will give him the skills and knowledge to provide the best possible care to his patients at the Rabin Medical Center, upon his return to Israel.
