Where Knowledge and Values Meet
NEW YORK MEDICAL COLLEGE AT-A-GLANCE
NYMC AT-A-GLANCE Founded in 1860, New York Medical College (NYMC) is one of the largest private health sciences colleges in the U.S. with nearly 1,700 students and 330 residents and clinical fellows, more than 2,640 faculty members and 23,500 living alumni. NYMC joined the Touro College and University System (TCUS) in 2011 and is located in Valhalla, N.Y., in Westchester County. TCUS is the largest university system under Jewish auspices in the U.S. and the country’s largest private educator of physicians graduating slightly less than four percent of all the nation’s M.D.s and D.O.s. Rooted in a proud legacy of inclusion, NYMC’s humanistic approach is a fundamental component of the exceptional academics and meaningful hands-on experiences provided by each of the five schools on the NYMC campus: the School of Medicine (SOM), the Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences (GSBMS), the School of Health Sciences and Practice (SHSP), the Touro College of Dental Medicine at NYMC (TouroCDM) and the Touro College School of Health Sciences’ nursing program at NYMC. Research at the College is notable in the areas of cancer, cardiovascular disease, infectious diseases, kidney disease, the neurosciences, disaster medicine and vaccine development. With a network of affiliated hospitals and clinical practices, NYMC provides a wide variety of clinical training opportunities throughout the New York-New Jersey-Connecticut region.

New York Medical College is located on a lush 54-acre suburban campus. A fixture in Westchester County in the lower Hudson Valley, approximately 15 miles north of New York City, NYMC provides an ideal base for students who wish to study and conduct research in the clinical and biomedical sciences. Our roots go back to 1860 with the founding of the Homeopathic Medical College of New York. NYMCâ€™s identity evolved through mergers and alignments with New York City-based institutions, such as Metropolitan Hospital, Flower Free Surgical Hospital and Fifth Avenue Hospital. Serving a large and diverse geographic area and population, NYMC maintains close ties with local communities through valuable affiliations with hospitals and other health care facilities in the area. Having local physicians and health commissioners among our faculty is one example of how NYMC and the region enjoy a symbiotic relationshipâ€”each serves and supports the other, and our students and the surrounding communities are the beneficiaries. 3
PREPARING FUTURE LEADERS • A Center of Excellence in Precision Responses to Bioterrorism and Disasters provides expertise and leadership in preventing, diagnosing and treating threats specific to biological and chemical terrorism and public health emergencies and to developing medical countermeasures. • NYMC unveiled the state-of-the-art 21,000 square-foot Clinical Skills and Simulation Center, where students receive hands-on training in replicated clinical settings to hone clinical skills in a safe and controlled environment before treating actual patients.
• NYMC launched a transformative biotechnology incubator, BioInc@NYMC— the only incubator of its kind in the region located on a health sciences college campus. • NYMC saw an increase in clinical training opportunities by establishing academic affiliations with Saint Michael’s Medical Center in Newark, N.J., Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, N.Y., Rome Memorial Hospital in Rome, N.Y., and the Beckley VA Medical Center in West Virginia.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH OPPORTUNITIES NYMC believes in active learning, not only educating health care professionals in their chosen specialties, but also facilitating hands-on training in the types of settings where they will someday practice. That’s why the College is deeply involved in its surrounding communities, bringing student research and skills to communities throughout the tristate area. D.P.T. Community Service Project In the D.P.T. Community Service Project, students work in small groups to plan and conduct a service project that aims to address a defined need in the community. La Casita de la Salud La Casita de la Salud, an inner-city health clinic run by NYMC medical students under faculty supervision, is dedicated to serving the uninsured population of the East Harlem neighborhood of Upper Manhattan and providing quality, culturally-competent care to all in need. Race for Rehab Hosted by D.P.T. students from the SHSP to benefit Achilles International, the Race for Rehab is an annual 5K run/walk/bike event held on campus each October.
Service Learning In SOM Service Learning programs, students work with doctors and health professionals at community sites—such as Open Door Family Medical Centers and the Westchester County Department of Health—on projects that address needs of the institutions.
Speech-Language Pathology Clinic The Department of Speech-Language Pathology provides its clinical services as the Division of Speech-Language Pathology of Boston Children’s Health Physicians. The Division provides outpatient services to children and adults, across the lifespan. The clinic employs ASHA-certified and NYS-licensed speechlanguage pathologists who train the next generation of professionals. Speech-Language Pathology Overseas SLP students focus on the ongoing development of clinical skills in measurement and evaluation procedures for adults with speech-language and/ or swallowing disorders in a variety of locations outside the United States. Students engage in collaborative projects with other students at the site, as well as explore the delivery of speech-language pathology and other healthcare services to adult and pediatric populations in a variety of settings. STAR Program The Summer Trainees in Academic Research (STAR) Program offers research opportunities to local high school students and undergraduates with medical students and faculty who conduct mentored scientific investigations in NYMC laboratories over the summer.

NYMC SCHOOL OF MEDICINE (SOM) Our educational philosophy prioritizes emotionally-connected patient care and prepares our students for this approach from their first day. They experience frequent face-to face interaction with patients in such clinical settings as local primary care medical practices during the Foundations of Clinical Medicine Course and clinical clerkships at affiliated hospital sites; La Casita de la Salud, a student-run clinic in the East Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan; and with a standardized patient pool in our Clinical Skills and Simulation Center. These hands-on experiences equip our students with strong interpersonal and clinical foundations upon which to build their careers.
