Resident Life


Approximately 25 miles from New York City and in the heart of Westchester County, NY, New York Medical College offers something for everyone. Known for its diverse natural beauty, Westchester County offers views of the Hudson River, running, hiking or biking trails and a vibrant social scene. In addition, Westchester County schools are consistently ranked as one of the highest in the nation.

Only 30-45 minutes away and easily accessible at any time by car or commuter train, New York City offers a variety of cultural, gastronomic, and nightlife options.

Additionally, the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery offers two on campus 2-bedroom apartments for rent to residents.

Given the close proximity of all of these options to and between all hospital and rotation sites, residents may choose to live in any of these locations throughout their residency.
