            • Scientific research 
            • Health and medical education
            • Patient care

Faculty members from its four schools (College of Physicians & Surgeons, College of Dental Medicine, School of Nursing, and Mailman School of Public Health):
 
  • Carry out the school's core mission of educating and training future generations of health care professionals.
  • Conduct basic research with the ultimate goal of translating discoveries into new techniques for fighting disease and improving health.
  • Are responsible for a number of significant clinical breakthroughs - among them, the first blood test for cancer, the first medical use of the laser, and the first successful transfer of genes from one cell to another.
