About Medical Services
Medical Services provides routine and urgent medical care, travel medicine, immunizations, as well as sexual health services, reproductive and gynecological services, LGBTQ health care, and confidential HIV testing. Students are encouraged to make appointments online with their health care provider. Support from Medical Services is available 24/7 via (212) 854-7426.
Get to know our staff and your Primary Care Provider:
Medical Services is organized into four practice groups to provide high quality, accessible, well-coordinated care: Amsterdam, Broadway, Morningside and Riverside groups (all are located within the same facility). Each practice group is compromised of physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and support staff. This model of care helps simplify and streamline routine administrative needs and processes, including obtaining a referral, ordering lab tests or prescription refills. That's why appointments made with your designated practice group are strongly encouraged.
How to make an appointment:
Appointments with your Primary Care Provider are available on an 18 hour rolling window via the web portal at http://secure.health.columbia.edu.
Many appointments with a Registered Nurse can be handled on a walk-in basis, but we strongly encourage you to first establish care with a Primary Care Provider at Medical Services.
Contact us at 212-854-7426 in advance to ensure we can accommodate your schedule. Specific types of appointments can be scheduled on the same day.
