Dr. Carmine is a general surgeon at Boston Medical Center and Boston Children’s Hospital, specializing in the field of minimally invasive and laparoscopic surgery as well as surgery for weight loss. He is a graduate of The University of Virginia and received his medical degree from Eastern Virginia Medical School. He completed his residency and fellowship training at Boston Medical Center.
With a long-standing interest in resident education and as an advocate of the use of simulation for advanced skill development, Dr. Carmine was involved in the design of the original Solomont Center as well as the creation of the “surgical arcade”, where minimally invasive fiber optic laparoscopic towers could be used to help hone surgical skills in trainees. In 2015, he assumed the position of Associate Director of Simulation at the center.
Dr. Carmine’s educational interests include the early acquisition of complex psychomotor skills in surgical trainees as well as maintenance of these skills in veteran learners. Additionally, he is interested in the maintenance and improvement of interprofessional and multidisciplinary team communication to improve patient safety and the overall patient experience at Boston Medical Center and beyond. His clinical and community interests include weight loss surgery for adults and adolescents, robotic and laparoscopic surgery, abdominal wall reconstruction, and expanding awareness and availability of medical and surgical services to the traditionally underserved.
