A Message from Interim Dean Augustine M.K. Choi

I am honored to serve as interim dean, at a time when Weill Cornell Medicine is experiencing a period of unprecedented growth and making remarkable advances in its mission to care, discover, and teach.

Increasingly, patients throughout New York City are benefitting from the exceptional care provided by Weill Cornell Medicine physicians.
