NYU School of Medicine faculty have excelled at providing top notch patient care, first rate medical education and conducting scientific research for over 150 years.
A major focus of clinical teaching in the Department of Surgery is at the adjacent Bellevue Hospital Center, the flagship hospital of New York City’s municipal hospital system. Bellevue is a regional center for replantation and spinal cord injury, a level 1 trauma center, medical back-up for the United Nations and for the President when he is in New York, and the provider of health care both to the local community and to the world which passes through New York.
The other major teaching hospital affiliated with the School of Medicine is the Manhattan Veterans Affairs Medical Center, the Manhattan campus which is located just south of Bellevue. The Veterans Hospital is the regional center for cardiac surgery, neurological surgery and urologic stone disease as well as a center for surgical oncology, general and vascular surgery.
The outstanding faculty of the Department of Surgery today includes 70 full-time and 54 part-time faculty. We have 5 endowed professorships. The members of the Department of Surgery all share a deep commitment to the teaching of medicine and the training of the next generation of physician-scientists.
The department continues to review the professional qualifications of potential faculty members, both full-time and clinical, who will advance its fundamental mission of providing state-of-the-art patient care, conducting leading-edge investigations, and fostering educational excellence and innovation.
