David Chong, MD

I have focused my career on clinical medicine blended with education for over twenty years. After completing my residency in Internal Medicine, I completed a Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship all here at Columbia and have worked in the Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU) ever since then. I became the MICU Director and then an Associate Program Director for the Internal Medicine Residency Program. I have strived for excellence in all aspects of teaching in order to be the best clinician-educator I can be. I have had the privilege of teaching medical students, residents, and fellows for over a decade. My other focus has been on education administration and leadership. I have served as a key faculty advisor, career mentor, and Associate Program Director for the Internal Medicine Residencies at Columbia University, NYU, and Moustanside Hospital. My goals are to encourage, develop, and help others excel in clinical education. I am also admittedly an early adopter of the latest technology and am always looking for ways to incorporate the newest technology like iPads, apps and the electronic medical record to enhance clinical teaching and learning.
