    Message from the Chair:

Donald Landry, MD, Ph

Professor of Medicine and Chair, Department of Medicine

In 1928, Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, now known as Columbia University Medical Center, became the world's first academic medical center. Since then we have had a long and rich tradition in training physicians of color. Today our department has the highest number of faculty members from underrepresented minority groups in the country!

As such, we are committed to increasing the diversity of our residency program by actively recruiting and supporting residents from under-represented minority groups. Our diverse housestaff, faculty, and patient population ensure a comprehensive and enriching learning experience for all of our houseofficers.

Throughout the year, LTS sponsors programs and events to include mentoring, community projects, recruitment, and social functions that support the academic, social, cultural and spiritual needs of our houseofficers and faculty.

We hope that you will find the information presented on our website valuable in helping you make decisions about your future career in medicine, and that you will consider continuing your education at Columbia University Medical Center
