NYMC POINTS OF PRIDE

Founded in 2023, the Women’s Institute for Science Entrepreneurship (WISE) is a program designed to support women innovators in cultivating new scientific concepts and launching new businesses that will make a significant difference in their communities and in the world; as well as encourage them to pursue STEM education and research. WISE draws upon faculty and students at NYMC and TU, and BioInc@NYMC. WISE connects interdisciplinary teams of students, researchers, faculty, and biotech entrepreneurs on and off campus to work collaboratively creating synergy to lead to pioneering and exceptional projects.

NYMC operates the Family Health Center, an outpatient faculty practice clinic providing comprehensive, medical and preventive care, as well as urgent care for patients of all ages including students, employees, as well as the general public. The Center also offers telehealth visits.

Data was used to help build an understanding of disease manifestations, therapy or vaccine evasion and efficacy, and supports other discoveries to inform public health intervention.

Recent laboratory renovations in the Basic Sciences Building include 17,000 square feet of multi-disciplinary research space, 3,000 square feet of shared core instrumentation space, and the installation of flexible casework systems and best-in-class equipment to foster innovation and collaboration.

The SOM launched a completely redesigned M.D. curriculum in 2022 that integrates basic science and clinical course content during the first 18 months of medical education, while also allowing students to enter clerkships much earlier in their education.

The SOM Areas of Concentration provide elective opportunities for medical students to differentiate themselves and pursue an area of personal interest in depth, including biomedical research, drug development, health equity leadership, culinary medicine, health policy, medical education, biomedical ethics, global and population health, as well as children’s environmental health.

BioInc@NYMC is the only fully equipped biotechnology incubator on a health sciences college campus, doubled in size offering additional square footage of shared and collaborative space to support biotech/medtech start-ups advancing health innovation in the Hudson Valley.
