Expert Care. Personalized Approach.

Visitors & Observers

 

The breadth of research and training at Columbia Orthopedics creates an array of opportunities for individuals to participate in enriching educational experiences. These opportunities are intended to be enriching educational and/or research experiences with a defined educational purpose. The following policy information and guidance are for those who wish to serve as a visitor/observer.

Due to the educational nature of these experiences, these positions are not employment positions, and those in them are not considered Columbia University/Columbia University Medical Center employees.

Interested visitors/observers, and faculty interested in serving as sponsors for visitors/observers, should first call 212.932.5091 to discuss plans for the experience. For a visitor/observer to participate, all requirements, forms and fees must be submitted, approved and paid prior to arrival on campus to begin a visitor/observer experience.
