Personal Statement

Dr. Lief is honored to be part of the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine here at Weill Cornell. She chose this specialty, and particularly the care of admitted patients to the Medical Intensive Care Unit which are cared for by our Pulmonary Consult Service, because it requires care of the whole patient. She often encounters patients and their families during episodes of critical illness and sometimes at the end of life. It is during these crucial moments that she uses the most advanced technology, up-to-date literature and her understanding of hemodynamics, physiology and the natural history of disease to care for her patients.  She prided herself in supporting not only her patients, but also their families through these difficult experiences.  

As a complement to caring for patients, Dr. Lief is devoted to educating the next generation of medical professionals. She works with our Division of Education towards this mission, specifically in expanding and operationalizing our simulation curriculum for the medical housestaff.


Dr. Lief is as Assistant Professor of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College and an Assistant Attending Physician at New York Presbyterian Hospital.  She completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Pennsylvania and her medical degree at Temple University School of Medicine.  The completed both her residency and fellowship at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center and served as the Chief Resident for the Department of Medicine.
