NYP COLUMBIA TO CORNELL TRANSFER

Posted

Hi everyone,

I am currently working at NYP Columbia and would like to transfer to Cornell. I was wondering if anyone has done this before or vice-versa? How was the process? Is the transfer easier since both facilities are NYP? I know the facilities operate very differently and independent of one another, so I am worried the transfer may be harder to do for that reason. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Hey,

Im surprised you ask this here instead of to your coworkers, but lucky for you, I have done this before, twice. LOL

Just apply though workday, do your interview, accept the offer if you like it, inform your manager and select your last date at CUMC and your start at WCMC. It is very likely that your last day will be a Friday and your first day that coming Monday.

Keep in mind that WCMC is not unionized, which means a pay bump, but can also mean some unfair situations between you and the clinical managers. Not so common its a huge issue, but the longer you spend there, the more likely you are to encounter it. The transfer is quite easy, and WCMC is a beautiful campus and great to work at. It was by and far my favorite campus, but everything was just so expensive I ended up taking home less money than when I was at CUMC.

Good Luck

Hey, you can park in Payton, or one of the other parking lots. 
Let me warn you though, it’s pricy, even WITH the discount. If you live in Manhattan you shouldn’t even waste your time with a car. 
I live in north Bx and I would just take the express bus there to save myself the creeps on the trains/buses. 
Contact the parking department (their number is listed on infonet, or you can just search parking on infonet and call the number) 

Otherwise just search parking lot on the internet. Sites like https://spothero.com/search?kind=destination&id=50248&utm_source=Google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=keyword_parking manhattan nyc::matchtype_e&utm_content=431255950533::adpos_::network_g::device_m::a_campaign_9862072256&ad_grp_id=99984788613&gclid=Cj0KCQjw8rT8BRCbARIsALWiOvTm0Ja8_61K7wJVnPz4FM5O50haHKkT83YjxEam82QQEeQZHlL9NvkaAmRpEALw_wcB 

give you an idea of what rates are like. 
good luck

Hey. You mention taking home less money at WCMC than CUMC, can you explain why/how this worked?  What were the benefits like at each place?  The starting pay-scale?  I know NYP-CUMC being unionized has a set scale, but how does it work at WCMC?  Which unit?
