Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to the Residency Training Program in Internal Medicine at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College. One of the country's top-tier residency programs, you will find training at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College to be an exciting and extraordinary journey. Set within the multicultural diversity that defines New York City, our training program offers an array of diverse cultures and a full spectrum of conditions and diseases that is unparalleled anywhere in the world. The path you choose -- whether it is being a physician-scientist, a clinical educator, and/or an academic leader -- is supported by state-of-the-art resources and by teachers who are renowned experts in their fields. The nationally and internationally recognized faculty who serve in the Department of Medicine are fully committed to your education and career growth.

The Department of Medicine has a rich and long-standing history, one that reflects a commitment to public health, groundbreaking research, and clinical care that is delivered with compassion and dignity for every patient. Our residents-in-training have played an integral role in this tradition for many years. The learning environment in the Department of Medicine is also distinguished by its collaborative spirit. Numerous research endeavors, leading to life-saving treatments, have been forged by world-class physicians and scientists here at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College. We have also collaborated on projects with researchers at the Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC), from around the world, and from our neighboring institutions of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Rockefeller University, and the Hospital for Special Surgery.

In recent years, under the leadership of Dr. Lia Logio, Vice Chair for Education, our residency program has become known for its pursuit of creative innovations in education. These innovations have included advancement in quality and safety, new organization of rotations, a senior seminar series, and expansion of research opportunities that has led to a frequent presence at national meetings and publications in the peer-reviewed journals.

Time and time again, residents who are training at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College report similar themes. They have enjoyed working in camaraderie with their fellow residents, receiving complete support and encouragement from their teachers, feeling an increased "passion for medicine," and standing at the door every morning "ready for another life-changing experience."
