At the Department of Epidemiology of the Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University, we have a global perspective and are particularly interested in understanding and improving the health of urban populations worldwide. Our faculty are leaders in chronic disease, infectious disease, lifecourse, psychiatric/neuro, and social epidemiology.
We are actively buidling on our foundational strengths in the biologic and social determinants of population health and in innovative methodologic approaches applied to all areas of excellence.
We are committed to teaching students who will be lifelong learners and who will be leaders in academic research and public health practice. We are interested in making our findings accessible and in using our findings to develop effective population-wide and clinical interventions.
