A Message From Our Leadership - December 2023

Dean Harrington

I am honored and excited to serve as the 15th dean of Weill Cornell Medicine. In this role, I serve alongside some of the brightest minds and most dedicated leaders on the forefront of patient care, scientific discovery and medical education.

At Weill Cornell Medicine, we have a special obligation to help raise the standards of medicine. This is a profound calling: It’s what drives our professionalism and sets us apart as an institution. The excellence and dedication of our students, physicians, researchers, educators and staff have earned the deep trust and respect of our patients, donors and community. And as dean, I am grateful for the opportunity to steward this trust.

During my first few weeks on campus, I witnessed the incredible strength and character of our community. The special Weill Cornell Medicine culture influences everything we do. It reflects a desire to lead through action, collaboration and expertise; an unwavering commitment to provide essential patient care to the diverse communities that surround us; and a devotion to discover game-changing treatments and cures. And it’s all driven by the extraordinary individuals who choose to engage daily as part of the Weill Cornell Medicine community.

When I look at the opportunities that lie ahead for this exceptional institution, we are in a remarkable position of strength. Through collaboration, commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity, and community partnerships – together with the ongoing support of so many of our donors and friends – we will continue to change medicine.

I feel proud to be at the helm of Weill Cornell Medicine and look forward to all that we will accomplish together.

With gratitude,
