The NYMC Student Healthcare Executives Club was established in the Summer of 2007 through the efforts of Deborah Viola Ph.D., the founding officers, and the School of Health Sciences and Practice (formerly the School of Public Health). The membership boasts students from a wide variety of disciplines. Students in good standing from any school within NYMC are invited to join.
The club was formed with the purpose of providing a network for students in healthcare administration to meet, exchange ideas on a local level. These goals include staying current on healthcare management issues, expanding healthcare management knowledge, and helping to shape the current and future environment of healthcare management. The club holds 4-5 meetings per academic year. These meetings, which are open to the entire NYMC community, are combined with lectures given by invited guests.

The chapter also coordinates an annual series of events for National Public Health Week (first week of April). The events have included a week long poster display put together by students, faculty, and invited organizations, and evening events which include lectures/talks on some of the latest hot button issues in healthcare management.
