"At CUMC" Title

Appointment to the “At Columbia University Medical Center” (“at CUMC”) Track:

Appointments to the “at CUMC” title may be based upon academic activities in one or more of the three scholarly areas of focus:

Educational Scholarship and Leadership

Applied Health Care and Public Health Interventions


Faculty with the “at CUMC” title may focus intensively on one of those areas of focus, or may make significant contributions in more than one area of focus either simultaneously or sequentially over time. Examples of faculty work are described for each of the areas of focus.

The areas of focus align valuable faculty work with a career path and provide clear criteria for academic advancement in all four CUMC schools: the Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, the College of Dental Medicine, the Mailman School of Public Health and the School of Nursing. This academic track and title system acknowledges, encourages and rewards excellence from CUMC faculty in these areas: education, investigation, and clinical care and public health interventions. Each school may have specific parameters for these areas of focus, so faculty should also review school-specific resources.
