Columbia Psychiatry is proud to be an international leader in the field of psychiatric medicine. An integral component of one of the nation's premier medical schools, Columbia Psychiatry is at the vanguard of training tomorrow's medical and health professionals in the diagnosis and treatment of mental and behavioral disorders in children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly. We are proud to rank in the top five nationally by the NIH (National Institutes of Health) in grant support. Our mission is to define for the field the standards of care and practices in psychiatry through cutting edge research, clinical care, policy, and training.
Your support provides vital unrestricted funds for core priorities that support new initiatives, student services, faculty educators, and research opportunities.
Much of our progress is the result of the foresight, commitment, and dedication of our contributors. The Frontier Fund is the annual fund of Columbia Psychiatry and provides critical support for our core mission. The name is inspired by the brain itself—one of the last true frontiers of exploration and discovery, and the focus of our vital research at Columbia Psychiatry.
