Chief Residents' Corner

Chief Residents, 2018-2019



Dr. Harmandeep Singh was born in Punjab, India and moved to the United States as a child. He studied cell biology and neuroscience at Rutgers University and earned his medical degree at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. 

Dr. Singh was drawn to Cornell for various reasons: its strong focus on education and clinical excellence; its unparalleled regional training; the expansion of the global health program; the supportive faculty and administration; and, most importantly, the unyielding camaraderie among the residents. He has been an active member of the Residency Support Council, advocating for his co-residents and emphasizing their well-being. Dr. Singh enjoys exploring New York City and dining at the limitless selection of restaurants.

Along with Drs. Daniel and Sullivan, Dr. Singh hopes to continue working to improve the residency experience at the hospital while also expanding it to include community outreach.       



Dr. Kate Sullivan was born and raised in New Jersey. She graduated summa cum laude from Loyola University Maryland, where she studied biology and chemistry. She received her medical degree from Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.

Dr. Sullivan was drawn to Cornell for the excellence in clinical training obtained at three world-class institutions in the heart of New York City, as well as the top-notch faculty devoted to resident education, the robust global health curriculum, and the close-knit community among the residents. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family, running in Central Park, seeing Broadway shows and trying new restaurants. After graduation, she will pursue training in Pediatric Anesthesiology. 

Dr. Sullivan is excited to work with Drs. Daniel and Singh as they strive to continually improve the residency program and graduate exceptional anesthesiologists who are leaders in the field.



Dr. Mitchell Daniel grew up in Houston, Texas. He moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas where he studied finance and completed his premedical coursework. He returned to Houston to complete his medical degree at the University of Texas Medical Branch. 

Dr. Daniel was drawn to Cornell for its unique global health program and strong clinical experience which offers rotations in three leading-edge hospitals. In his free time, he can be found walking his dog with co-residents along the East River, or trying one of Manhattan’s many great restaurants. 

Dr. Daniel is excited to work with Drs. Sullivan and Singh, and will be providing a special emphasis on expanding senior resident teaching and emergency management simulations.


Message from the Chiefs

As your Chief Residents for 2018-2019, we are immensely excited and honored to continue the positive momentum that has characterized the Cornell Residency over the past few years. Our training consists of rotations at three world class institutions: NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Hospital for Special Surgery. Through this training, our exceptional residents are consistently challenged with a diverse patient population and case load. Our residents graduate with the knowledge and skills reflective of this world-class training. We have seen exciting growth in our clinical experiences through electives in veterinary anesthesia at Cornell University and global health in India and Rwanda, improving our already outstanding clinical training and patient care experiences. On top of all of this, our residents live and work in one of the most exciting cities in the world and frequently take advantage of the food, museums, parks, concerts, and shopping that New York City has to offer.

We have seen the residency continue to stay ahead of the curve with respect to our education and resident wellness during our time here. Our educational curriculum has been thoughtfully designed to efficiently and comprehensively prepare us for both oral and written board examinations through a combination of didactics, electronic resources and case-based review. The Residency Support Council, an integral part of our residency program, continues to expand its programming, with resident wellness and social support as its highest priorities.

As your chiefs, we take our responsibility as resident advocates to be our most important task. We will work hard to make sure that our co-residents can come to us with their concerns and suggestions at any time. The residency is the lifeblood of the department and we look forward to continuing to keep that focus central to the mission of the Department of Anesthesiology. We encourage your input and are excited to work together as we strive to continually improve our program and make Cornell Anesthesiology the best it can be.
