In June of this year, Dr. Robert A. Harrington was named the Stephen and Suzanne Weiss Dean of Weill Cornell Medicine and Cornell University’s provost for medical affairs. Dean Harrington, the former chair of Stanford University’s Department of Medicine, is a cardiologist and past president of the American Heart Association.
As chair of the Department of Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medicine, I have seen firsthand the dedication of our leadership, staff, faculty and students, and have experienced our uniquely collaborative culture.
Powered by a strong connection to their alma mater – and inspired by the student-focused initiatives of the We’re Changing Medicine campaign – Weill Cornell Medicine alumni are affirming their enthusiasm with remarkable engagement and philanthropy.
From the moment they receive their short white coats to the moment they are handed their hard-earned diplomas on the stage at Carnegie Hall, our students are essential members of the Weill Cornell Medicine family.
With gratitude to the institution that launched their careers, the Weill Cornell Medicine class of 1974 will name a music room in the new student residence – a group gift that represents a substantial investment in the We’re Changing Medicine campaign.
Dr. Jian Shen (M.D.-Ph.D. ’02) started at Weill Cornell Medicine in 1992, fresh from college in Beijing and eager to pursue his passion for science at a major academic medical center in the United States.
