Nearly 19,000 men and women have graduated from New York Medical College since its founding in 1860. Today our alumni reside in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the territories of Guam and Puerto Rico and 14 foreign countries, where they provide superior medical care, perform cutting-edge research, hold leadership positions at prestigious institutions, and train tomorrow’s healthcare professionals at many leading academic health centers and schools of medicine.
The Alumni Association of the School of Medicine has fostered relationships between New York Medical College alumni and their alma mater since 1883. Whether exchanging ideas or information, organizing continuing medical education seminars, improving educational opportunities for today's medical students or enhancing the school's reputation, the Alumni Association is a vital component of university life.
Visiting the Alumni Center
The Alumni Center is located in a white colonial farmhouse said to date from pre-Revolutionary times. In 1982 the house was being considered for demolition when the Alumni Association raised more than $300,000 to renovate it. The building was faithfully restored using methods and materials consistent with the house’s original construction. The Alumni Association Board of Governors held their first meeting in the newly refurbished Alumni Center in March 1984 and the group continues to meet there to this day. It’s an essential first stop for alumni visiting campus. Please call 914-594-4556 if you would like a tour of this gracious home.
Annual dues for the Alumni Association of the School of Medicine are $50 for the first five years following graduation, $150 thereafter, and $1,500 for lifetime membership. These dues provide funds for a variety of programs sponsored by the Alumni Association, including the acclaimed Student Physician Awareness Day (SPAD), a reception for first-year medical students held during orientation, the School of Medicine yearbook, a scholarship for a summer internship in internal medicine, continuing education programs, and the underwriting of all graduating medical students’ attendance at the annual alumni banquet.
