Personal Statement

Dr. Lily Hanna knew she wanted to practice gynecology before she even entered medical school. After earning her B.A. in Biology from the University of Pennsylvania in 1996 she continued her education at Tulane University, where she received her Master in Public Health in 1999.

Dr. Hanna continued her medical studies at Louisiana State University School of Medicine.  She began medical school believing she would enter a career as a urogynecologist, but once she had her first experience in antenatal care she knew her specialty would include obstetrics with gynecology. She was awarded her MD in 2003. After completing medical school, Dr. Hanna moved to New York and began her obstetrics and gynecology residency St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center, which she completed in 2007. She has been a member of the American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology since 2003, and has been board certified since 2008.

Prior to joining Weill Cornell Medicine in 2015, Dr. Hanna held a teaching position at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center. She has worked with Dr. Moritz, Dr. Lee and Dr. Jew since 2008.
