College of Physicians and Surgeons
The College of Physicians and Surgeons (P&S) is one of the preeminent medical schools in the United States. The College’s legacy of superb education and training is enhanced and integrated with the sponsorship of leading-edge basic, clinical, and translational research, and the provision of outstanding patient care. Our benefactors are truly our partners in the advancement of medical education, scientific discovery, and new approaches to improve the health of our patients.

Dean's New Initiatives Fund
Allow Columbia to explore the most promising fields of medicine.
The Department of Neuroscience, the Center for Human Genetics, the Cardiovascular Research Initiative and the Transplant Initiative are innovative and grounding breaking programs that have the potential to transform the practice of medicine.
Provide critical unrestricted support for new initiatives as well as ongoing projects directly affecting the quality of P&S education.
Annual gifts from alumni are the bedrock of Columbia's fundraising program and a measure of alumni support for the University. Current use funds, endowment, and bequests are welcomed.
Help the medical school recruit and retain world-class intellectual capital.
A new P&S education building will enhance the way students study and practice medicine.
The revamped Haven Square, a green urban space with an outdoor terrace, shops, and restaurants, will provide a focal area for collaborating and socializing. Renovations to the entrance of the P&S building and a revamped auditorium with state-of-the-art equipment will advance the learning experience.
Scholarship and Fellowship Support
Recognize faculty members who demonstrate superior teaching and pedagogical skills.
These annual fellowships encourage continued excellence among the more than 400 clinicians and researchers who are engaged in the instruction and mentoring of P&S medical students.
Scientific progress requires an investment in yet unproven ideas.
Philanthropic support enables our faculty to pursue inquires and studies that provide the insight and knowledge necessary to address the health challenges facing those we serve.
Broaden advanced, compassionate patient care based on rigorous application of tested new diagnostic tools and innovative therapies.
Support adult and pediatric multidisciplinary research and clinical programs at the medical school, from neuroscience, cardiovascular medicine, and metabolic disorders to cancer, genetics, and immunology and transplantation.
Help young or mid-career faculty members build exceptional futures.
An average of three years is required to establish extramural funding, such as from the NIH, for faculty research programs. A gift of $75,000 or more provides critical assistance during the ramp-up years, before faculty members have established sufficient track records as investigators and can draw independently on federal funding.
Keep the P&S curriculum strong: Help it incorporate groundbreaking interdisciplinary methodologies and content.
Integrating common themes in medicine, public health, nursing, and dentistry, the P&S curriculum must be reviewed and updated continually to reflect the new frontiers of medical knowledge and teaching methods such as simulation.
Laboratory and Equipment
Enhance the work of faculty researchers and their staffs with this gift for medical school laboratory renovation and equipment.
Facilities and state-of-the-art equipment are the tools with which P&S physicians and investigators pursue both clinical research and basic science. Help faculty strengthen their research and better train doctoral and post-doctoral students.
