The Eating Disorders Clinic is a nationally recognized treatment/research program, that is part of the New York State Psychiatric Institute and located at Columbia University Medical Center.


The Columbia Center for Eating Disorders is an internationally recognized program with nearly thirty years of commitment to the research and treatment of eating disorders. Founded by Dr. B. Timothy Walsh, now the Director of Clinical Therapeutics, the Center is currently under the leadership of Dr. Evelyn Attia. Our multidisciplinary team has unparalleled expertise in cutting edge research, which is used to provide as well as develop innovative therapies.


We are a nationally recognized treatment/research program. The clinic conducts research studies on anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder and obesity in an effort to better understand these conditions and develop more effective treatments.

Patients who are interested and eligible in the research will receive treatment at no cost. The clinic provides both inpatient and outpatient treatment services. The eligibility criteria for research participation vary from study to study, so interested individuals should contact the clinic to obtain more information.

We are also always interested in healthy volunteers for our research studies. Volunteers will be compensated for their time.
