Weill Cornell Medicine College is focused on excellence in patient care, scientific discovery and the education of future doctors in New York City and around the globe. The college faculty gives complete patient care at NewYork-Presbyterian or Weill Cornell Medical Center, NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital, NewYork-Presbyterian Queens and NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital. It is among the most selective medical schools in the country, with 106 students chosen from 6,000 candidates. Educational programs incorporate research projects in various disciplines.
Weill Cornell Graduate School (WCGS) plans to prepare the next generation of biomedical science leaders. WCGS students learn how to make innovative scientific discoveries by preparing in the labs of incredibly famous researchers and participating in a strong network of scholars. The Tri-institutional MD-PhD Program is a result of collaboration among Weill Cornell Medical College, the Rockefeller University, and the Sloan Kettering Institute to prepare future doctor researchers.
By replacing student’s credits with grants that cover the educational cost, lodging and other everyday costs, a transformative scholarship program by Weill Cornell Medicine guarantees that all students, including those from economically diverse backgrounds, can pursue their medical education without worrying about the financial burden. This program engages students to eventually focus their careers on their interests and talents, instead of the future salary to reimburse their advances.
