Connie Myers Guion (August 29, 1882 – April 30, 1971) was an American professor of medicine. She was influential in developing health care systems for the poor in New York City and training programs for new health care professionals at Cornell Medical Center. She founded the Cornell Pay Clinic, which supported the poor in the city and brought in training. She was the first woman to be named professor of clinical medicine, and in 1963 became the first living woman physician to have a building named after her (New York Hospital's Connie Guion Building). Up until her death, she made many house calls and ran her own private clinic.
