Dr. Sinelnikov played a huge role in my medical education and growth as both a future physician and person. I've never met someone who could be both intimidatingly honest yet genuinely and consistently caring in the way that he was. I spent my first two years of medical school doing research with him and talking or meeting every week, then had him as my PBL facilitator in the last semester, and he was completely dedicated to making sure his students succeeded. He was one of, if not the most, supportive and encouraging faculty members not only at LECOM, but that I have ever known. He will be deeply missed, rest in peace Dr. Sinelnikov. Prayers and thoughts for your family.

Dr. Sinelnikov was one of the most knowledgeable individuals I have ever come to know. He would come into every PBL session with a smile, wholeheartedly share his knowledge of medicine with everyone he came across and sparked an interest in his students to want to learn more. His dedication to teaching and to those around him will never be forgotten. To his family and friends, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

It was a privilege to know such an incredible professor. May you Rest In Peace, Dr. Sinelnikov.

Dr. Sinelnikov was a professor who was at first intimidating, but quickly grew to be not only one of my biggest advocates at LECOM but also my mentor. I enjoyed hearing about his kids and grandkids during the summer I spent prosecting with him in the Anatomy lab. In our final conversation he told me that "the best mentor is that who tells you the bad things too." He had a brilliant mind and I always appreciated his brute honesty and respected his opinion. He will be greatly missed. Condolences to his family and loved ones during this time.

Dr. Sinelnikov was one of the most brilliant minds I have ever come across. His vast knowledge of medicine was something that is almost impossible to fathom and he was always ready to share it. I enjoyed my summer dissecting alongside him. I will always remember him for being someone who was constantly worried about teaching us every nook and cranny of medicine, wanting us not to be deficient in any subject area because we might need to know it one day. He was at times brutally honest but anyone who knew Dr. Sinelnikov knew that he ALWAYS wanted his students to succeed. The world lost a great man. My condolences go out to your family Dr. Sinelnikov, you will be missed. May you Rest In Peace.

To my teacher and fellow pathologist, you will always be remembered for your quick wit and honesty. May you find peace in knowing that many students are better because of you.

During anatomy lab at LECOM, Dr. Sinelnikov approached me because he saw my Jewish star necklace and, to my surprise, wanted to talk to me about Judaism. After talking to him, I felt inspired to start the Jewish Student Association at LECOM, and asked him to be the adviser for the club. Since then, we had shared a unique bond and always said "hi" to each other in the halls, and sometimes stopped to chat. I was really excited for what was to come with the club with him as adviser. I will miss our chats in the hallway. May you rest in peace.

Dr. Sinelnikov was one of my absolute favorite professors. He was brutally honest yet kind, telling me one of the first few days of school that I don't "think before I speak" (out of love of course). He will be so missed, and we lost an integral member to our LECOM family. I am thinking of and praying for his family during this difficult time, and may he rest in peace.

I want to thank Dr. Sinelnikov for his professionalism and kindness. He was a master teacher; students and faculty were in awe about how much he knew. However, Dr. Sinelnikov was more concerned with people learning the craft of anatomy (and medicine)-which he considered a higher calling. To his family and friends, I am very sorry for your loss. And to Dr. Sinelnikov, rest in peace, my friend.
My sincere condolences,
