Executive Vice President for Health Sciences; Dean, Faculties of Health Sciences and Medicine & Chief Executive Officer, Columbia University Irving Medical Center

Under the leadership of President Lee C. Bollinger, Columbia stands at the very top rank of great research universities, distinguished by comprehensive academic excellence, an innovative and sustainable approach to global engagement, two of the largest capital campaigns in the history of higher education, and the institution’s most ambitious campus expansion in over a century. As with all institutions, Columbia also is emerging from and will continue to tackle the multitude of challenges resulting from the pandemic. As a result of these remarkable accomplishments, Columbia University is seeking the ideal leader to succeed in the combined position of Executive Vice President for Health Sciences, Dean of Faculties of Health Sciences and Medicine, and Chief Executive Officer of Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC).

The next Executive Vice President of Health, Dean of Faculties of Health Sciences and Medicine and CEO of Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC), will have the unique opportunity to both build upon the tremendous progress made across the past 15 years and lead the organization through a post-pandemic recovery. By leveraging Columbia’s assets, the Dean and CEO will have the opportunity to develop innovative interdisciplinary programs that build upon and advance the existing strengths of the broader University. This is to be coupled with a strong and nurturing environment that will be attractive to outstanding leaders, faculty, staff, trainees, and students with a broad range of academic interests. CUIMC includes four outstanding schools - the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons (VP&S), College of Dental Medicine (CDM), School of Nursing (SoN) and Mailman School of Public Health (MSPH) — and has major partnerships with NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (NYP), and the New York State Psychiatric Institute.

Reporting to the President of Columbia University and leading one of the top investment areas for the University over the next five to seven years, the Dean and CEO will be expected to have outsize impact on the academic health sciences enterprise. To be successful, the Dean and CEO will have demonstrated success in inspirational leadership, building interprofessional and multidisciplinary collaborations, cultivating philanthropy and leading a complex financial academic enterprise.
