Dr. Tenenbaum is deeply committed to fulfilling the privilege that the practice and teaching of medicine affords. The first is the commitment to the patient - to bring the best of modern medicine with the finest art of the classical caring of medicine to heal those who are sick, provide remedy for suffering, and to promote health. The second is the commitment to those who come to train - to afford the best experience in realizing one's potential, to present the best examples of medical caregiving. Dr. Tenenbaum has led the Department of Medicine to flourish in its commitment to education, teaching, and research through a similar focus.

Joseph Tenenbaum is a native of New Jersey. He graduated with a BA in Physical Chemistry from Brandeis University, but then redirected himself to medicine. Completing Harvard Medical School in 1974, he returned to New York to train at Presbyterian Hospital in Internal Medicine and then at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in Cardiology. He joined the Columbia University Medicine faculty in 1979, where he has remained since. In addition to a busy practice of internal medicine and cardiology, he has continued as a specialist in general cardiology with focus on critical care, valvular heart disease, coronary artery disease and preventive cardiology. He has been a committed teacher, receiving Columbia University’s Presidential Teaching award in 2010. After efforts as vice chair and acting chair of medicine, he was Clinical Dean of the Medical School for two years. He now compliments his clinical activities with roles as Director of the Internal Medicine Training Program and Chief of the Allen Hospital Division of Medicine. Dr. Tenenbaum is married to Marilous Faith Tenenbaum. He has a daughter, Mollie Rodriquez.
