Erin E. Conway-Habes MD

Department of Medicine

Clinical Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics

 
Professional Summary:

As an adult and pediatric hospitalist at Buffalo General Medical Center and Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, my clinical practice focuses on the care of hospitalized adults and children. My clinical expertise is the inpatient care of adults with congenital or chronic health conditions originating in childhood. As a Clinical Associate Professor of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, I am actively involved in resident and medical student education and clinical training. My teaching focuses on evidence-based medicine and systems-based practice. I also regularly participate in morning report and case-based teaching, lecturing at both Internal Medicine conferences and Med-Peds monthly conferences.

My academic interests involve improving efficiency and quality of care of hospitalized patients. I was previously a faculty member at the University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. During those 2 years, I gained advanced training in the science of improvement and in the care of adults with congenital or complex healthcare needs admitted to pediatric hospitals and have presented nationally on these topics. I am a Buffalo native and returned in 2016 to join the faculty at UB.
