Duncan K. Hau, M.D.

Pediatric Hospitalist
Duncan Hau

One of the most rewarding aspects of my work is guiding families through difficult periods in their child’s health and development. It is a great privilege to care for children in challenging circumstances.  I find great satisfaction in helping to restore a sick child to full health. 


Dr. Hau received his B.S. from Cornell University and his M.D. from Tufts University School for Medicine.  He completed his pediatric residency at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center.

After residency, he spent two years in Mwanza, Tanzania as a clinician and educator with the Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative. Upon returning to New York, Dr. Hau served as an Instructor in Clinical Pediatrics at Columbia University.
