Government Affairs

The Government Affairs section of the GCA office at Columbia University Medical Center serves as the primary liaison between the College of Physicians & Surgeons, College of Dental Medicine, Mailman School of Public Health, School of Nursing and government at the federal, state, and city level.  The Office keeps deans, faculty, and departmental administrators abreast of legislative and regulatory developments impacting their respective fields.  Government Affairs advocates for and represents the Medical Center's interest on matters before the legislature.  The office represents the Medical Center in various professional organizations to promote and advance the Medical Center's mission.  The office maintains relations with elected officials and key stakeholders to emphasize the values and contributions that Columbia University Medical Center brings to our neighbors, city, state, national and international communities.

Please contact us if you plan or would like to engage elected officials or other senior policy officials.  New ethics rules on the federal, state, and city level govern lobbying activity and the responsibility thereof, so it is very important that the GCA Office be made aware of any lobbying or other advocacy activity.  Be advised that failure to properly report lobbying activities can result in sanctions against the University and the person failing to report.
