After earning a doctor of medicine from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and an MBA from Wharton, Mitchell Blutt went on to launch the health care investment business at JPMorgan Partners and subsequently founded Consonance Capital. In addition to his role as an instructor at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City, Mitchell Blutt serves on its Dean’s Council.
The Weill Cornell Medical College Dean’s Council exists to help advance research, patient care, and instruction in the Weill Cornell community through the efforts of its members. Dedicated to philanthropy and major giving to the college, Dean’s Council members build relationships with Weill Cornell’s best physicians and faculty while learning more about how their contributions advance positive change in the medical field.
Dean’s Council donors are in turn recognized through a variety of societies and appellation giving opportunities, such as endowments for student scholarships and research. For instance, The Lewis Atterbury Stimson Society holds a recognition luncheon for its donors every spring. Those that contribute to the Council also receive a newsletter with information about how the money is being spent.
