As one of our nation’s premier academic medical centers, NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center devotes vast resources to clinical research programs that advance our understanding of disease and lead to therapies that improve the lives of patients not just at our hospital, but worldwide.
Sponsored research in the Department of Surgery has more than doubled in the last three years to over $19 million, allowing us to have a substantial impact on national healthcare policy. Almost all of our divisions now have at least one investigator funded by the National Institutes of Health. With our robust culture of clinical trials and our expertise in tracking long-term outcomes, we are setting new national benchmarks.
