ABOUT COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY
Located in upper Manhattan, Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) is a hub for premier treatment, research, and education. CUIMC is home to a number of graduate schools in the health sciences (medical, dental, physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing, public health, nutrition, and lab-based sciences). Counseling Services provides clinical
services to the approximately 4000 students enrolled at the medical center. Students come from around the country, and the world, to pursue graduate training in their chosen field and we work to meet them as patients themselves so that assessment and treatment provided facilitates academic success and retention. We also seek to engage students as future healthcare providers, policy makers, and/or researchers. The average age of students is 26 years.
