Working at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC)

A message from Lee Goldman, M.D.
Executive Vice President for Health and Biomedical Sciences
Dean of the Faculties of Health Sciences and Medicine:


Columbia University Medical Center is a unique collection of health sciences schools where health care, health education, and scientific research intersect in pursuit of a common goal: to improve health and reduce the burden of disease. Our four schools -- the College of Physicians & Surgeons, the College of Dental Medicine, the Mailman School of Public Health, and the School of Nursing -- along with our graduate programs, have national and international leaders in many fields.

The work we do here, in partnership with New York-Presbyterian Hospital and the New York State Psychiatric Institute, is respected within our neighborhood, throughout our city, across the nation, and around the world. We have faculty, staff, and students at locations throughout Manhattan, in far-flung American cities and rural areas, and in centers and clinics in Third World countries. At last count, individuals represent the medical center on every continent, in more than 100 countries. The list grows annually.

People who work at Columbia University Medical Center are proud of the Center’s rich history and are vested with a sense of purpose to maintain the standards Columbia has established for renowned patient care, award-winning research, superior education and training, and unparalleled involvement in the world around us. Each person’s skills and dedication are applied to worthy goals that have significance to the many people we serve in multiple capacities. This is a great place with spectacular people, and every day we strive to make it even better.
