We Are Weill Cornell Medicine: Dr. Anthony Watkins

As the grandson of a successful surgeon, Dr. Anthony Watkins was inspired to pursue a similar career path in medicine. But he soon learned that becoming a great surgeon requires more than superior technical skills; it requires the ability to connect with patients. 

“Medicine is part of the DNA of who I am. But what I’ve found equally important is the human element,” said Dr. Watkins, an assistant professor of surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine. “What drives me is this interest and desire to make a meaningful impact in people’s lives.”
