Welcome to the Weill Cornell Medicine press room. Whether you are a journalist, faculty, staff or student, this is where you can learn about Weill Cornell Medicine policies and procedures, how to connect with our experts, read the latest news about our institution, and reach media relations staff who can assist in your search for information.

The Weill Cornell Medicine media relations team oversees and facilitates all media requests and interviews involving the institution’s faculty and administration. Each media team member manages specific service areas (i.e., “beats”) and helps journalists identify experts and other resources within our core missions of patient care, research and education. For our faculty, the media team is a resource to help publicize their work (e.g., peer-reviewed journal articles, medical meeting presentations, patient testimonials) and manage media inquiries.
