Additional Information:
As an attending physician at the Cayuga Medical Center (and thus a member of its medical staff), Dr. Law has held many leadership positions. These include Chair of the Department of Medicine for two years and President of the Medical Staff for one year. He has also been very active in medical education. During 2009, his year as medical staff president at CMC, he initiated an active affiliation with Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City, and was responsible for bringing undergraduate medical students to Ithaca for 6-week clinical clerkships in primary care. He was similarly responsible for bringing medical residents from New York Presbyterian Hospital to Ithaca for 2–4 week elective periods based at the Cayuga Medical Center in order to practice general medicine as hospitalists in a community hospital, as well as to observe primary care in medical offices. He is currently Director of Ithaca Medical Education, a collaboration between the medical staff of the Cayuga Medical Center and Cornell’s Gannett Health Services that provides clinical education for medical students and residents. Dr. Law has also been engaged in peer education, in 2014 becoming chair of the Cayuga Medical Center’s Continuing Medical Education Committee for its medical staff. He has served the Cornell University community as well, sitting on the Recombinant DNA Advisory Committee (1995 – 2000) and being an active member of the Health Careers Program Advisory Board since 1996. Dr. Law has been the recipient of several awards since opening his medical practice. He received the Recognition for Outstanding Service award of the Tompkins County Community Mental Health Services Board in 2010; the Weill Cornell Medical College Excellence in Teaching Award in 2011 for his work in medical student education; and the Louis W. Munchmeyer, MD, Award for Excellence from the Cayuga Medical Center in 2012.
