Media Contacts

The Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) Office of Communications and Public Affairs oversees all media relations for the Medical Center. It manages day-to-day media relations for CUMC’s medical and dental schools, the College of Physicians & Surgeons and the College of Dental Medicine, and for the faculty of the biomedical departments of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

The Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University School of Nursing, and Department of Psychiatry maintain separate communications offices, which manage their day-to-day media relations while working closely with CUMC’s Office of Communications and Public Affairs.
