Dr. Tara Bishop Receives 2014 Weill Cornell Leadership Fellowship
Tara F. Bishop, MD, MPH, Assistant Professor of Healthcare Policy and Research, Assistant Professor of Medicine, and the Nanette Laitman Clinical Scholar in Clinical Evaluation, has been selected for the third cohort of Weill-Cornell Leadership Fellows, to begin July 1, 2014. This program was established in 2012 by Dean Laurie H. Glimcher and is co-chaired by Lawrence Casalino, MD, PhD, Professor of Healthcare Research and Policy and Chief of the Division of Healthcare Policy and Economics and Michael J. Wolk, MD, Clinical Professor of Medicine, Chief Contracting Officer of the Weill Cornell Physician Organization and President of the Michael Wolk Heart Foundation. The program is sponsored by the Michael J. Wolk Heart Foundation, Inc. and requires that at least 10 percent of the fellows’ time be protected for the program. Matthew J. Press, MD, MSc, Assistant Professor of Healthcare Policy and Research, Assistant Professor of Medicine, and the Nanette Laitman Clinical Scholar in Quality of Care Research, is one of the fellows from the second cohort.

This joint program of Weill Cornell Medical College and the Weill Cornell Physician Organization seeks to identify and foster the development of Weill Cornell’s “Leaders of Tomorrow,” who will help the medical center develop innovative solutions to efficient, patient-centered and cost-effective health care delivery. Fellows become knowledgeable about health care policy, health care delivery and processes that can be used to improve care. They develop abilities that make it possible for them to take active roles at the medical center in improving use of clinical information systems, optimizing patient access and patient safety, responding to new models of paying physicians and hospitals, and improving the quality of care for our patients.
