Steven Field received his B.A. in History from Yale University in 1973 and his M.D. from New York University School of Medicine four years later. Following Gastroenterology training at Mount Sinai Hospital, he returned to clinical practice and teaching at NYU, where he has remained, though retired from practice. He is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine in the School of Medicine, and also received certification in Bioethics and Medical Humanities, as well as Psychodynamic Psychotherapy of Adults.

Long interested in the intersection of mind and body (especially brain and gut), he had prior to retiring both medical and psychotherapy practices.
Dr. Field serves as Clinical Ethics Consultant at NYU Langone Health and is the Physician Leader for the Schwartz Rounds program at NYU and a facilitator for the School’s Humanistic Aspects of Medical Education program.  He co-teaches a high school class, Bioethics and Medical Humanities, as well as lecturing on the politics of and collusion between the medical profession and the Third Reich for an organization that trains high school teachers nationwide who teach Holocaust studies.  He also has one of the larger collections of unpublished—in fact, unsubmitted—short story manuscripts in the New York metropolitan area.
