The Joan and Sanford I. Weill Department of Medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College has a longstanding tradition of excellence in medical education. The department provides medical students, residents, and fellows with a rich learning environment to hone their clinical skills, practice evidence-based medicine, and think critically about their patients. Through a wealth of educational resources, mentoring from our distinguished faculty, and rigorous yet balanced training, our graduates build a foundation of excellence for academic careers in clinical practice and research. Based on our enduring commitment to education, we continue to produce outstanding physicians, physician-scientists and academic clinicians.
The Residency Program in Internal Medicine is a top-tier program with three unique training tracks including the traditional categorical program, a primary care program, and the medical research pathway.
New York City offers a tremendous diversity in patient populations and disease entities. The department increases that diversity by its well developed global health programs in Haiti and Tanzania, as well as our partnership with the medical community in Ithaca, New York, near the main Cornell University campus, where students and residents can participate in rural health, student and adolescent health, and community hospital medicine elective rotations.
The department offers subspecialty training through our fellowship programs, including cardiology (general, electrophysiology, heart failure, and interventional), gastroenterology and hepatology, geriatrics, health services research, hematology-oncology, infectious disease, nephrology, pulmonary-critical care, and rheumatology in partnership with the Hospital for Special Surgery right next door. In addition, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center across the street offers fellowship programs in hematology-oncology, as well as critical care, gastroenterology, infectious disease, pulmonary, pain and palliative care.
