CUMC Facts & Figures

Situated on a 20-acre campus in Northern Manhattan and accounting for roughly half of Columbia University’s nearly $3 billion annual budget, Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) provides global leadership in scientific research, health and medical education, and patient care.

CUMC’s major teaching hospital affiliates are NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and the New York State Psychiatric Institute, both of which share the CUMC campus. The medical center also has academic affiliations with the Harlem Hospital Medical Center, operated by the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation; Bassett Healthcare, in Cooperstown, NY; the Isabella Geriatric Center, in New York City; and Arnot Ogden Medical Center, in Elmira, NY. Columbia’s faculty practice is ColumbiaDoctors.

CUMC plays a leading role in global health issues, in particular, capacity building. About 30 percent of P&S students participate in international programs, and almost 50 percent of third-year dental students participate in the school’s global health externships. The nursing school has research and teaching partnerships with schools and clinics in Bangladesh, the Dominican Republic, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, and Taiwan. Mailman School of Public Health has programs in more than 100 countries across the globe.
