This chapter talks about how Weill Cornell renewed its commitment to caring for patients throughout the city after the 9/11 tragedy. The first years of the new millennium were characterized by an entirely new level of global engagement at the medical school, with the launch of a branch campus in the Middle East (Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar), an affiliation with a hospital in Houston (Houston Methodist Hospital), and a proliferation of research exchange programs around the world. Weill Cornell's increased involvement in global health also reflected a larger trend throughout the country, which was to become “the land grant university to the world.” As a result, several universities in the United States began setting up international branch campuses and experimenting with foreign partnerships of various kinds.
