About Us

Daniel Morelli, MD

Daniel Morelli, MD, department chair.

Our department achieves high standards of education, research and patient care, all with the goal of bringing family medicine to a new level.

Our department educates and trains physicians throughout their careers, from medical school to residency, fellowship and beyond.
Our faculty physicians staff four ambulatory practices and care for inpatients at our affiliated hospitals, serving primarily underserved and other vulnerable populations. We train medical students, residents and fellows at these sites, modeling exemplary care as we seek to enhance health and quality of life in families, one patient at a time.
Faculty in our transdisciplinary research unit pursue clinical and health services studies that benefit patients, inform policy and improve the health care system. Our department is ranked seventh in the medical school for external funding.
We’re deeply committed to our community, and we show that by contributing to the health and well-being of Western New Yorkers — particularly those with limited access to, or options for, medical care.
Our unique consortium of affiliated teaching hospitals and health care systems offers a wide range of clinical experiences and training opportunities.
We offer you the opportunity to work in a university and multi-hospital partnership in urban, suburban and rural settings.
We have several endowment funds which support our mission of teaching, research and community service.
