Personal Statement

A great academic department should include a group of physicians who not only care deeply for their patients but also for their colleagues, and provide an environment that promotes learning and collaboration, which in turn leads to better patient care. In our department, dedication to patient care is combined with a core interest in both clinical and basic research, which allows our physicians to contribute to the better understanding of diseases and provide their patients with the most up-to-date therapies. Because Weill Cornell's Department of Dermatology embodies these qualities of medical care, I am honored to be a member of its faculty.
