Columbia Health Overview
Columbia Health provides integrated and accessible services and programs that support the well-being of the campus community, and the personal and academic development of students. Columbia Health is comprised of more than 100 individuals: medical providers, disability specialists*, nutritionists, health educators, therapists, psychiatrists, peer counselors, student personnel, support staff, and administrative professionals.
Columbia Health also provides primary care for the insurance program through Medical Services. Students must be seen first at Medical Services for any minor injuries or illness (non-emergency) and for referrals to other physicians within the network of healthcare providers.
Columbia Health also includes counseling and psychological services, health education, advocacy and services for students with disabilities*, support for survivors of sexual assault, as well as the public health services the department provides to the university community. *(Students with disabilities should contact the Office of Access and Services for Individuals with Disabilities (OASID) at Teachers College, 212-678-3689).
Coverage is available only after a referral has been provided by a Counseling and Psychological Services clinician.
