Welcome from the Chief
The Division of Hematology/Oncology at Columbia University and the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center is made up of a large faculty with broad expertise in research, patient care, and teaching. We welcome you to our website and hope you find information on our sections that focus on disease-specific areas and describe our fellowship training program.
Important information about our activities and interactions can also be found on the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center Web site and the cancer clinical trials section of that Web site.
We are located at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center. NewYork-Presbyterian has consistently been ranked among the top ten hospitals in the United States and has consistently been ranked the top hospital in New York City and State. Columbia University School of Physicians and Surgeons is one of the top medical schools in the country and Columbia University ranks among the top 20 institutions in NIH funding. The Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center has been continually funded by the National Cancer Institute since 1974 and has also been recognized as one of the comprehensive cancer centers in the country since that designation was granted by the NCI.
My faculty and I have dedicated our careers to cutting-edge patient care, internationally-recognized research accomplishments, and comprehensive training for students, residents, and fellows. Do not hesitate to contact us regarding any way we can serve you and apply our skills and knowledge.
Edward P. Gelmann, M.D.
