About Edward J. Schenck, M.D.
As an academic intensivist at New York Presbyterian Hospital I specialize in caring for the critically ill. This usually involves managing multiple complex situations and prioritizing care in the face of uncertainty. I strive to provide expert and holistic guidance to patients and their loved ones in these challenging situations. In addition to my clinical responsibilities, I am actively involved in the educational mission of Weill-Cornell Medical College. I consider the development of medical students, residents and pulmonary critical care fellows a high priority. I have a particular focus in teaching bedside intensive care ultrasound and critical assessment of the medical literature. It is a privilege to work with a multidisciplinary team of outstanding nurses, pharmacists, residents and fellows. I am honored to be at a forward thinking and progressive institution, where care exceeds expectations.
