Medical Student Education

Weill Cornell Medicine’s educational mission emphasizes the importance of combining a strong, basic foundation in the medical sciences with extensive clinical training in patient care. By promoting a true social commitment, stimulating creativity and fostering independent thought and study, Weill Cornell Medicine continues its tradition of cultivating the best of tomorrow's leaders in the field of medicine.

During the clinical portion of their medical studies, students learn by actively providing care to patients, under the supervision of our faculty physicians. Weill Cornell Medicine's model for clinical learning encourages the student to analyze clinical problems rigorously, then discuss the interpretation with our physicians, then implement the clinical plan. This encourages the student to develop independent clinical skills, while safeguarding the highest level of patient care.

As a member of the clinical team, Glickman Fellows are expected to gain familiarity with the surgical, radiation and chemotherapy treatments of the patients being cared for by the team, and will be responsible for preparing a presentation on a topic related to the management of gynecologic oncology patients. The Fellowship runs 4-8 weeks and a stipend is awarded to the selected candidate. Please contact Michelle Charles at mic2038@med.cornell.edu.
