Dr. Augustine Choi
Weill Cornell Medicine
Choi in 2019 created a new scholarship program eliminating medical education debt for all M.D. students who qualify for financial aid. He also increased the number of Dean’s Diversity Scholarships—full tuition to medical students from underrepresented groups who have financial need. In 2018, the school received a $2.7 million federal grant to establish a Diversity Center of Excellence.
