Chair, Department of Medicine

The Department of Medicine at NYU Langone Health is one of the nation’s longest established, as well as the largest academic department at NYU School of Medicine. Through its research, teaching, and training of medical students and graduates, it has shaped advances in scientific progress and the resulting improvements in patient care.

We are proud to be a vital part of a world-class, patient-driven academic medical center that is infused with an innovative spirit and ideally positioned to meet new healthcare challenges. This sense of momentum is evident in the talent and energy of our faculty, and in the way our clinical, educational, and research missions are dovetailing through exciting and innovative new programs.

Over the past several years, we’ve made great progress in many of our comprehensive clinical and translational program areas, including autoimmunity, inflammatory bowel disease, heart disease, advanced lung disease, diabetes, and obesity. In education, we have developed new tracks suited to the diverse interests of our house officers, from community medicine to highly specialized quaternary care. The openings of the new Science Building and the Kimmel Pavilion on 30th and 34th streets, respectively have created wonderful new opportunities for growth.

Our department — made up of 12 divisions engaged in care at 4 hospitals and multiple ambulatory practices — is guided by the mission of NYU School of Medicine: “to serve, to teach, to discover.” It is in this spirit that we strive to attain the highest standards in education, research, and clinical care.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our programs, educational activities, and research initiatives. Thank you for your interest in our department and services.
