We Are Weill Cornell Medicine: Dr. Yoon Kang

As a medical educator at Weill Cornell Medicine, internist Dr. Yoon Kang imparts knowledge rooted in compassion and empathy to the next generation of physicians — with a focus on respectful, patient-centered care.

"I tell students to think of your mother sitting on an exam room table, and treat that patient how you would like your mother to be treated by a clinician," said Dr. Kang, the Richard P. Cohen, M.D. Associate Professor of Medical Education. "As an MD educator, I’ve been able to put all of that energy together — that creative energy, that scientific inquiry, all together — into one job, which is amazing."
