The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medicine is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is the major clinical affiliate and teaching hospital of Weill Cornell Medicine. NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medicine, an 824-bed facility, is centrally located in a collaborative medical community that includes the Hospital for Special Surgery, Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and The Rockefeller University.
The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine provides science-based diagnostic services of the highest quality in anatomic pathology and laboratory medicine; pursues innovative basic and clinical research dedicated to improving the diagnosis and management of human disease; and promotes an integrated scientific and clinical educational experience for pathology residents and fellows and Weill Cornell medical and graduate students. We meet our mission through the integrated activities of six divisions:
- Anatomic Pathology, including the full range of subspecialties
- Laboratory Medicine
- Molecular and Genomic Pathology
- Cell and Cancer Pathobiology
- Computational and Systems Pathology
Message From the Chair
What distinguishes an extraordinary pathology department from a good one? We believe it is several-fold: 1) Faculty members who are nationally regarded in their fields is essential, particularly those who have advanced subspecialty training; 2) Faculty who have a commitment to patient care, coupled with rapid delivery of diagnostic test results; 3) Faculty who are dedicated to teaching and mentoring the leaders of the future; and 4) Faculty who are doing outstanding research to advance the field of pathology as well as support other avenues of biomedical investigation with the potential to improve the practice of medicine.
Our mission is to foster a fully integrated, academic pathology department to: 1)provide the highest quality education, research, and CLIA-based diagnostic tests; 2) foster integration of the Department of Pathology within the fabric of Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork Presbyterian Hospital, which is centered on innovation in anatomic, molecular and computational pathology as well as laboratory medicine; and, finally, 3) create a dynamic hub for scientific excellence that utilizes innovative and sophisticated molecular pathology approaches to study human disease.
