New York Medical College Affiliation

New York Medical College (NYMC) is one of the oldest and largest private medical schools in the United States. It was a nonsectarian institution affiliated with the Catholic Archdiocese of New York City. Originally located in New York City, the college moved to Valhalla, New York, during the 1970's. The campus is now about 25 miles north of Metropolitan Hospital Center, in suburban Westchester County. Now NYMC is affiliated with Touro College.

The affiliation between Metropolitan Hospital Center and New York Medical College extends back to 1875, making it the single oldest affiliation between a municipal hospital and a private medical school in the United States. Today, the hospital remains as one of the college’s major teaching affiliates. All of the hospital's supervisory attending physicians are faculty members of the medical college, with appropriate academic appointments and involvement in academic activities. In addition, the hospital is integrally involved with undergraduate medical education programs in virtually all major disciplines. The Department of Medicine participates in the following student education programs: the Clinical Skills (Physical Diagnosis) course for second year students; the Medicine clerkship (both the traditional and primary care tracks) and the Family Medicine clerkship for third year students; sub-internship and subspecialty rotations for fourth year medical students.

The Medicine Residency Program and all of the various medical subspecialty fellowship programs are affiliated with and fully sponsored by New York Medical College.
