Our Mission

The Young Men's Clinic (YMC) is operated by New York Presbyterian Hospital (NYPH) and the Center for Community Health and Education (CCHE) at the Heilbrunn Department of Population and Family Health (HDPFH), Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University. The clinic addresses the health needs of males 14-35 years of age, with a focus on sexual and reproductive health. While most men who visit the YMC are from Washington Heights, Harlem, and the Bronx, the clinic is open to all young men. The YMC believes that providing high quality services to the men of our community, training the next generation of health professionals, and conducting service-based research are interdependent activities. The YMC believes that men have a right to healthcare, and that improving men's health improves the health of families and the entire community.
