About Us

Message from the Chair

As Chair of the Joan and Sanford I. Weill Department of Medicine, I am very proud of our positive impact on academic medicine.  However, there is much more work to do. Today's world of translational research will open the door to new, life-saving interventions that can more broadly and effectively impact patients and society. An ever-expanding universe of tools, including laboratory advancements, translational studies, clinical trials, and outcomes and implementation science provide the keys. We are committed to making every effort to positively impact our community.

Our home of New York City is a multicultural academic mecca. Our researchers collaborate on projects with colleagues at the Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC) here at Weill Cornell Medicine/NewYork-Presbyterian, our neighboring world-class institutions, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Rockefeller University, and Hospital for Special Surgery, and institutions all over the world.

Our Department’s outstanding clinicians and physician-scientists bring the highest levels of expertise in the broad range of areas that comprise internal medicine and its subspecialties. We treat patients from New York City, the tri-state area, the nation, and all corners of the world. Our faculty and trainees also serve patients treated at NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital, NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital and NewYork-Presbyterian Queens Hospital. These collaborations broaden our clinical reach and our academic footprint. 

Home to one of the country's top-tier residency training programs, we are known for our innovative approach to education. Residents-in-training, fellows, and Weill Cornell medical students enjoy first-rate training, an environment of camaraderie, and a wide array of clinical and research opportunities. Our dedicated faculty engage in a proactive style of mentoring geared toward building a young physician's career path, whether it be as a physician-scientist, clinician, educator, or academic leader.

With laser-like focus fueled by the talents of a world-class faculty and a strong dedication to diversity, we use the latest research tools to unravel the medical discoveries of tomorrow. In this spirit of collaboration and advancement, we are committed to providing all our patients with the high-quality care, compassion, and dignity they deserve.

Thank you for taking the time to explore our Department’s activities, and please feel free to connect with us in more depth.
