Biography

Dr. Raik is a native New Yorker, born and raised in Brooklyn. After graduating from Harpur College (now Binghamton University), she and her husband joined the Peace Corps and  spent two years teaching middle school English in rural South Korea. She then studied medicine at New York University School of Medicine, where she also completed her residency in Internal Medicine. Dr. Raik was a member of the Division of General Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center where her interest in geriatrics grew out of a program making house calls to homebound elderly in Washington Heights. She was pleased to join the Weill Cornell Division of Geriatrics as Director of the Geriatric Fellowship Program in 1999.

Dr. Raik enjoys teaching at all levels of medical school, residency and fellowship training. Her research interests include ethical dilemmas in caring for older people.

She lives in Manhattan with her husband. Her son and two daughters have returned to their mother's roots and live in Brooklyn. You may spot her in Central Park with camera and binoculars, as she is an avid birdwatcher and photographer.
