Dr. Philip Meyers Honored for Outstanding Patient Care

Academy of Clinical Excellence certificate for Dr. Meyers

How can you tell if your doctor is excellent? First of all, if your doctor is in the Neurosurgery Department here at Columbia University Medical Center/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, that’s a good clue. We pride ourselves on creating and maintaining a culture of hard work and excellence in medicine.

You might do a search on your physician’s name and find it attached to groundbreaking research and articles in prestigious publications. Those are also signs that your doctor is excellent.

But when you have doctors who excel in research and who are publishing groundbreaking work it can sometimes be easy to overlook their excellence at the rest of the job—taking care of patients.

In 2016 the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons created the Academy of Clinical Excellence to recognize Columbia physicians who shine above the rest in the area of patient care.

Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons is ranked consistently among the best in U.S. medical schools and is one of the most research intensive,” said Dr. Lee Goldman, Dean of the Faculties of Health Sciences and Medicine, “but we are also home to excellence in clinical care in more than 230 medical specialties and subspecialties.”

This year the Academy of Clinical Excellence inducted Dr. Philip Meyers into its ranks, honoring him for the outstanding work he does caring for his patients. Dr. Meyers is an endovascular neuroradiologist who specializes in treating blood vessel disorders of the brain.

“I am humbled and honored to be recognized by Dean Goldman for my clinical service at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons,” Dr. Meyers said.

Dr. Meyers was nominated for induction into the Academy by his fellow clinical faculty members. His nomination was then reviewed by existing Academy members, who identified those physicians who are devoted both to the very best in patient care and to training the next generation of clinicians.

If you’d like to learn more about the Academy of Clinical Excellence, a video on their website explains their purpose and their mission. You can watch it here.

Congratulations to Dr. Meyers on being recognized for the excellent care he gives his patients!
