As Pediatrician-in-Chief and Chairman, it is a great pleasure for me to welcome you to the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital's Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children's Health and the Department of Pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medicine.
Our Department continues to make great progress. Our clinical volumes continue to grow, thus providing an outstanding training experience for our residents, regardless of the post-residency career path they choose. We are proud about the progress made by so many of our clinical and educational programs, and are especially proud of our continued success of our program at the Weill Bugando Hospital in Tanzania.>
Our Department's mission is to provide our residents with an outstanding educational opportunity that combines a comprehensive experience in general pediatrics coupled with in-depth exposure to tertiary and quaternary sub-specialty pediatrics. In addition, the Department has incorporated a state-of-the-art Pediatric Simulation Program into the fabric of the resident education. We have added new strengths in Genetics, including a newly developed 2-week concentration in Genetics for our senior residents. We have an outstanding faculty, now numbering 120, who are committed to your education. During your time with us, you will have considerable contact with this quality faculty as they are fully engaged in resident education and clinical care.
We continue to provide an outstanding research training experience. We believe this is a unique strength of our program and a wonderful complement to your clinical training. Residents are assigned a faculty member to assist them in preparing and executing the required research project. The success of this program is measured in the number of our residents who present their research at national academic society meetings. Several of these projects have gone on to publication.
Over the past decade, our residents have launched highly successful careers in both private practice and academic medicine. We are extremely proud of their accomplishments and contributions to Pediatrics.
Our location in the Upper East Side of Manhattan is an added bonus. As you know, New York City offers numerous welcome distractions from the demands of residency training. This is a great neighborhood, close to parks, museums, diverse shopping, dining options, and public transportation.
Thank you for coming to visit us. I look forward to meeting you during your stay.
