The WDOM congratulates its faculty who received Weill Cornell Medicine’s 2021 Excellence in Medical Education Awards. These awards honor educators for their outstanding contributions to the Weill Cornell Medicine medical education program.
Initiated in 2002, the award is given to fellows within the Weill Department of Medicine who have performed outstanding research. This year's finalists were presented at Medicine Grand Rounds on June 23.
The award encourages medical residents to continue their investigative research in internal medicine. Each year, senior medical residents submit research abstracts, and finalists are chosen to present their work during medical grand rounds.
