Dr. Erskine comes to Shore Physicians Group most recently from Capital Health in Trenton and Hopewell, NJ, where she served as a hospitalist physician providing attending supervision of residents hospital-wide, including in the Medical ICU and Stroke Unit. Prior to that, both at University Medical Center of Princeton and at Temple University Health System, she held positions as physician advisor to the medical staff and clinical lead for IT system implementations in addition to her clinical patient care responsibilities.
Dr. Erskine received her MD from MCP-Hahnemann University School of Medicine and her Master’s in Information Systems and Fellowship in Medical Informatics from Drexel University. She holds a board certification in internal medicine with a specialty certification in hospitalist medicine. She received her undergraduate degree in Anthropology and Environmental Studies with a concentration in Women’s Studies from Emory University.
