Dean's Messages
Dean Augustine Choi
August 7, 2020

I firmly believe that we will emerge from this battle wiser and stronger than before, and that our COVID-related work at Weill Cornell Medicine will only enhance the ways we approach research, patient care, and education down the road. As we move forward, however, we must reflect on the lessons COVID has taught us, so we can do everything possible to ensure that the next generation of physician-scientists is able to mobilize as quickly and effectively as we did against any impending health crisis that endangers our community, our nation, and the world.
