The Department has been committed to excellence in teaching, research, and patient care since its founding as part of King’s College (later Columbia University) in 1767. They are a diverse department with thirteen divisions. They maintain a dedicated and outstanding faculty of over 1300 physicians and scientists, train an outstanding house staff over 200 (including research fellows and students), and retain a support staff of approximately 600. They are the largest clinical department in the College of Physicians & Surgeons, with a budget over $450 million.
Their education and teaching efforts are nationally recognized, their internal medicine residency continues to be one of the finest programs in the country, and their subspecialty training positions are increasingly competitive.
Their physicians consistently provide outstanding patient care in many settings, from hospitals and clinics to private offices. If you are new to the area, you can find out about their physicians in Find a Doctor page. You may also wish to consider participating as a research subject in a clinical trial. We encourage community physicians to go to our consultation and patient referral site. The Department of Medicine is a leader in research in areas such as diabetes, obesity, atherosclerosis, and lipid metabolism, and they are always working to bridge the gap between research and patient care through translational research. They are also fortunate enough to be surrounded by institutional strengths at Columbia in the basic sciences and public health. They are able to access many centers, from within the Department and without, that provide opportunities for collaborative research. Faculty research is well funded from a diverse pool of sponsors, including the National Institutes of Health.
They are very fortunate that the Department has many friends who have generously given gifts to the Department. It is only with this support that we have been able to expand their programs in so many areas.
Divisions of Internal Medicine:
Their department consists of 14 divisions spanning the breadth of Internal Medicine. These subspecialty divisions work as one through a centralized organization and administration to ensure that patients receive the best possible care. Many of their faculty are leaders in their respective fields, and more than half of the divisions are ranked in the top 20 by US News and World Report. What’s more, the department is ranked 2nd in NIH Medical School Funding for FY18. Each division has its own administration, clinics, research and fellowship programs.
