New Faculty


Welcome to Weill Cornell! As a new faculty member, you may have lots of questions about your new academic home. This office can be helpful in providing you with information.

Founded in 1898, and affiliated with what is now NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital since 1927, Weill Cornell Medical College is among the top-ranked clinical and medical research centers in the country. In addition to offering degrees in medicine, Weill Cornell also has PhD programs in biomedical research at the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences. With neighboring Sloan-Kettering Institute and The Rockefeller University, Weill Cornell has established a joint MD-PhD program for students for training in Weill Cornell's triple missions of education, research, and patient care.

Weill Cornell Medical College consists of 24 basic science and patient care departments that focus on the sciences underlying clinical medicine and/or encompass the study, treatment, and prevention of human diseases. In addition to its affiliation with NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell Medical College and the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences maintain major affiliations with Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, The Rockefeller University, the Hospital for Special Surgery, as well as with the metropolitan-area institutions that constitute NewYork-Presbyterian Healthcare Network. Weill Cornell Medical College and the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences are accredited by the Liaison Committee for Medical Education of the American Medical Association and the Association of American Medical Colleges.
