Dr. Rondello co-developed New York’s first graduate program in Emergency Management.  Prior to coming to Adelphi, he served as the Associate Director of Saint Barnabas Health Care System’s Center for Healthcare Preparedness, a HRSA-funded institute established to further education and research in the field of medical disaster readiness.

Since December 2002, Dr. Rondello has served as a Disaster Epidemiologist with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ National Disaster Medical System.  Now assigned to the Multi-Specialty Enhancement Team (MSET), he is a member of the federal response organization tasked with providing critical emergency medical support to regions of the country overwhelmed by disaster. 

Through his affiliation with the NGO ProWorld, Dr. Rondello traveled to Kathmandu, Nepal in January 2013 to advise Nobel Medical College, Helping Hands Hospital, and key Ministry of Health officials in preparedness measures to address morbidity and mortality associated with tectonic natural disasters.
