Receiving his BA degree in Biology from the University of Rochester in 1965, Dr. Moshman graduated from medical school at the State University of Buffalo (NY) in 1969 and completed his medical internship there in 1970. He then did two years duty with the US Public Health Service, where he gained considerable experience in ambulatory medicine at the USPHS Outpatient Clinics in lower Manhattan, prior to finishing his residency in Internal Medicine at Montefiore Medical Center in The Bronx, New York. From 1974-2002 he was affiliated in various capacities with Montefiore Medical Center, attending at the Morrisania Neighborhood Family Care Center, North Central Bronx Hospital, and from 1981-2002 at the Montefiore General Medical Clinic. He has been on the faculty of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, achieving the rank of Associate Professor of Medicine there in 1990.

Since arriving at Westchester Medical Center he has made his mark with the house staff as an experienced teacher of practical clinical medicine.

With his hands-on approach and his skills as a physical diagnostician, Dr. Moshman is the attending frequently sought after by interns, residents and students when confronted with a diagnostic dilemma or when they need to sharpen their clinical acumen. Because of his relaxed, easy-going style, he is readily approached and tapped for his advice.
Dr. Moshman's interests extend beyond Medicine. A dedicated musician since childhood, he is a former violinist who has composed many chamber and symphonic works. He is the conductor/music director of the Albert Einstein Symphony Orchestra, a community orchestra which was founded by him in 1982. It has been well reviewed in New York City papers, featured on National Public Radio, and has attracted many internationally known soloists. He is also an avid student of world and American history, the history of science, and the game of baseball.
