Rana Kaplan, MD

About Me

I am a pulmonologist with expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with lung conditions related to cancer and its treatment.

Plus and Minus IconIcon showing a plus/minus toggle, indicating that the surrounding element can be opened and closed.

I provide both inpatient and outpatient consultation in pulmonary medicine. My clinical interests include pulmonary diseases affecting the immunocompromised host, especially those associated with hematologic malignancies and bone marrow transplantation, as well as interstitial lung diseases and pulmonary conditions associated with connective-tissue disorders.

In addition to my clinical duties, I have an interest in medical education and enjoy participating in the training of medical students, residents, fellows, and physician assistants. I routinely participate in medical student tutorials at Weill Cornell Medical College and also serve on the Pulmonary Fellowship Clinical Competency Committee at Memorial Hospital.

I hold a membership in the American College of Chest Physicians, where I serve on the steering committee of the Women’s Health Network. I am also a member of the Executive Committee of the New York State Thoracic Society, which is a local chapter of the American Thoracic Society. I contribute to the yearly scientific assembly of the New York Thoracic Society, which is geared toward educating fellows and junior attendings.

Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicaid and New York State Medicare also provide benefits for care at MSK.
