Description: The volunteer program at Columbia University Department of Psychiatry is service-oriented. Volunteers work in alliance with employees in various departments. They are an essential part of the staff. The Columbia University Department of Psychiatry is mainly a research organization; therefore, most of our volunteers choose to work on our many research studies. Volunteer tasks vary from clerical work to patient or research subject contact, usually observing interviews performed by our researchers.
