Welcome to the future of Columbia University Medical Center: A new era of medical education built on a legacy of excellence and achievement.

For more than two centuries, Columbia University has been a premier destination for extraordinary medical and graduate students, training generations of physicians and scientists and providing outstanding patient care. Today, in keeping with rapid advances in science and technology, Columbia University Medical Center is undertaking a bold new effort to provide state-of-the-art learning facilities to benefit its students, faculty, and patients.

This exciting initiative will give our patients and visitors the best possible experience of Columbia, both inside and out—while providing a modern home for our faculty, as well as the students who will lead medicine as the next generation of Columbia-trained health professionals. Lead Designers Diller Scofidio + Renfro, in collaboration with Gensler (Executive Architects) have designed the building to reshape the look and feel of the medical center, creating an enriching new experience for students and faculty as well as our patients. As a new educational hub of student life, it will become a true academic home for our students. Equipped with the most advanced technology for medical instruction, the building will transform how Columbia educates tomorrow’s physicians.
