NEW YORK MEDICAL COLLEGE (NYMC) TAKES NEW APPROACHES TO HEALTH SCIENCE EDUCATION
ew York Medical College’s (NYMC) School of Health Sciences and Practice (SHSP) brings health care to life by offering students hands-on experiential training that complements its exceptional clinical and educational programs and lets students see — first-hand — how they can impact and change lives. Upon graduation, this approach translates into health care professionals with the experience and confidence to hit the ground running in their careers. For example, SHSP’s physical therapy and speech-language pathology graduates consistently achieve passing rates at or close to 100% on their respective licensure examinations. Located on a lush 54-acre campus in Valhalla, N.Y., in Westchester County, NYMC’s beautiful suburban campus is convenient to New York City, the Hudson Valley, Connecticut and New Jersey, offering a richness of culture and activity, as well as prime access to clinical sites and health care organizations for SHSP’s practical training elements. Since NYMC’s founding in 1860, the College has been committed not only to educational excellence, scholarship and professionalism, but also to diversity, inclusion, humanism and service. Offering degrees in public health, physical therapy, speech-language pathology, biostatistics and epidemiology, as well as advanced certificates in critical public health areas, SHSP’s focus is on educating and training students to change and improve health and health care in communities – locally, regionally and globally. “Opportunities abound for real-world experience and collaboration in all of our programs, along with the chance to do important research that can lead to real change,” said SHSP Dean Robert W. Amler, M.D., M.B.A., in a recent welcome to new students. Virtually all of SHSP’s programs transcend traditional molds by extending the classroom into the community by teaching in context so that students understand the real-life applications of their education.
“Going ‘beyond words’ means students will learn the broader context of health, disease and disability in addition to the requisite clinical skills. Additionally, SHSP’s uniquely strong focus on public health is how our students develop an appreciation for their role in ensuring the communicative health of the population.”
SHSPs Doctor of Physical Therapy (D.P.T.) Program offers problem-based learning, an interdisciplinary approach that integrates the medical science curriculum with clinical assessment, diagnosis and treatment. Students learn, from the outset, to consider patients from a
variety of perspectives, to see the whole patient. Department Chair Michael Majsak, P.T., Ed.D., elaborates: “SHSP provides students with a perspective on physical therapy that does not occur in a traditional educational environment. In addition to SHSP faculty, D.P.T. students at NYMC learn from the School of Medicine faculty in the 24-hour gross anatomy laboratory. They also learn state-of-the-art screening techniques for risk factors and early indicators of illness and how to design health and wellness programs. These skills complement those they learn for treating patients in acute-care settings, rehabilitation centers, home care and long-term care settings.”
SHSP’s Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) Program offers important opportunities for students to engage with real-world public health challenges through practicum and capstone projects. Working with Amy Ansehl, D.N.P., FNP-BC, SHSP’s associate dean of student experience, associate professor of public health practice and executive director of the Partnership for a Healthy Population, students choose a health care site and a project. Working with the organization’s staff and employing the tools they’ve been taught in the classroom, they complete a project necessary to the organization’s progress. NYMC, page 12
The SHSP Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) Program is one of the few medicallyoriented SLP programs in the United States. In a variety of clinical settings, students treat medically compromised and fragile patients, working as part of interdisciplinary medical teams. As department Chair Kathleen Franklin, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, explains that the program goes “beyond words” to assess and assist patients and their families.

I FEEL SO POWERLESS. WE HAVE TO WATCH HER EVERY MINUTE. FAMILY AND FRIENDS STOPPED COMING AROUND. HE KEEPS SAYING: “THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH ME.” IT’S DESTROYING OUR FAMILY. I FEEL SO GUILTY WE HAVE TO MOVE HER INTO A HOME. IT’S SO HARD TO CARE FOR SOMEONE WHO’S MEAN TO YOU. HE HIDES THINGS ALL THE TIME. I’M GRIEVING THE LOSS OF SOMEONE WHO’S STILL ALIVE. WE DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START.
LIVING WITH FTD IS HARD. LIVING WITHOUT HELP IS HARDER. THERE’S COMFORT IN FINDING OTHERS WHO UNDERSTAND. WE FINALLY FOUND A DOCTOR WHO GETS IT. I GOT SO MUCH ADVICE FROM OTHER CAREGIVERS. UNDERSTANDING MORE HELPS ME DEAL WITH HER SYMPTOMS. SEEING THAT OTHERS MADE IT THROUGH, I KNEW I COULD TOO. WE HONOR HIM BY ADVOCATING FOR A CURE. NOW I’M BETTER AT ASKING FOR HELP. NO MATTER HOW BAD IT GETS, WE KNOW WE’RE NOT ALONE. It can feel so isolating and confusing from the start: Just getting a diagnosis of FTD takes 3.6 years on average. But no family facing FTD should ever have to face it alone, and with your help, we’re working to make sure that no one does. The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (AFTD) is dedicated to a world without FTD, and to providing help and support for those living with this disease today.
