Weill Cornell Medicine: Founded in 1898, and affiliated with what is now New York-Presbyterian Hospital (NYPH) since 1927, Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM) is among the top-ranked clinical and medical research centers in the country. In addition to offering degrees in medicine, WCM also has PhD programs in biomedical research and education at the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences, and with neighboring Sloan-Kettering Institute and The Rockefeller University, has established a joint MD-PhD program for students to intensify their pursuit of Weill Cornell’s triple mission of education, research, and patient care. WCM is divided into 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. The basic science and clinical departments are located in buildings that straddle York Ave. between 68th and 72nd streets on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Weill Cornell Medical College has 1781 full- time faculty (3582 total faculty) distributed across 8 basic science and 15 clinical departments. WCM maintains 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 NYP Healthcare Network.
