Columbia Medical Student Outreach (CoSMO) Clinic
Organized by: Alexandra Bercow
EVENT DATE Oct 12, 2014
For a decade, volunteers from five CUMC schools — Medicine, Nursing, Public Health, Physicial Therapy, and Nutrition — have been offering high-quality, accessible healthcare to uninsured Washington Height’s residents. Moreover, via our institutional partners, we are now routinely obtaining referrals for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures such as echocardiograms, optometry care and glasses, diabetic eye and foot exams, mammograms and colonoscopies. In only 10 years, we have become a staple of not only the five CUMC schools but also the Washington Heights community. Under the guidance of an advisory board of CUMC deans, New York Presbyterian (NYP) Hospital administrative officers, and dedicated attendings, we can proudly say that our clinic offers quality primary care of the highest standards to our patients while providing a rich learning experience for CUMC students.
All proceeds will be directly donated to CoSMO!
