One of the most unique and remarkable features of the Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) campus is the exceptional array of educational resources found within a few city blocks. From building to building, and one floor to the next, classrooms comingle with clinics and conference halls, cutting-edge laboratories, premier research centers, and a world-class academic hospital. The hallways and sidewalks bustle with energy and intellectual excitement, as students walk side-by-side with world-renowned clinicians, exceptional teachers, leading researchers, and the patients that inspire them all.
The CUIMC campus consists of the Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians & Surgeons, the Mailman School of Public Health, the College of Dental Medicine, the School of Nursing, and the Graduate School (Basic Sciences), and CUIMC's two major teaching hospital affiliates: NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and the New York State Psychiatric Institute. Columbia University's faculty practice is ColumbiaDoctors.
NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is one of the nation's largest and most comprehensive hospitals, with 2,478 beds. The Hospital averages over 2 million inpatient and outpatient visits per year.
