Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medicine 

What distinguishes an extraordinary pathology department from a good one? Faculty members who are nationally and internationally regarded in their fields, most who have advanced subspecialty training. A commitment to patient care, with rapid delivery of diagnostic test results. Dedication to teaching and mentoring the leaders of the future. And research to advance the field as well as support other avenues of biomedical investigation with the potential to improve the practice of medicine.

Massimo Loda, MD

These traits are precisely what set the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center apart from those at other institutions. We are fortunate to be based in Weill Cornell Medical College, a prestigious Ivy League medical school, and in NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, one of the top ranked hospitals in the United States.

Our mission is to integrate medical science and clinical medicine in patient care, research, and education. We offer clinical and laboratory services that span the full depth and breadth of all pathology subspecialties. Our department includes highly productive well-funded basic science and clinical research faculty members whose investigations center on a variety of areas, with a strong focus on the biology of hematologic and solid tumor malignancies.

Our faculty are heavily engaged in teaching medical students, residents, and fellows. Residency training is tailored to each individual's career goals. Seventy-five percent of our residents go on to academic careers in anatomic and clinical pathology.

I invite you to visit the pages of our Web site to see what we have to offer. The Department is dedicated to expanding its clinical services, research programs, and educational opportunities. We welcome your participation in this endeavor.
