A simple columnar epithelium is a columnar epithelium that is uni-layered. In humans, a simple columnar epithelium forms a lining in the uterus and in most organs of the digestive tract including the stomach, small intestine, and large intestine.
Simple columnar epithelia are further divided into two categories: nonciliated and ciliated.
