Optimal Learning Environment & Professionalism

New York Medical College (NYMC) School of Medicine is confident that safe and effective care of patients is shaped by an environment of quality medical education that is rooted in human dignity.

NYMC School of Medicine embraces our responsibility to create, support, and facilitate a learning environment in which our patients witness and experience a sense of respect, collegiality, kindness and cooperation among our students and teachers. This same sense is expected of all who impact the environment of patient care: administrators, advanced learners, other health professionals and staff.

NYMC School of Medicine affirms our responsibility to create, support, and facilitate a challenging learning environment that empowers both educators and students. We affirm our commitment to excellence in shaping a culture of teaching, learning, research and patient care that is rooted in collaboration, empathy, compassion, and respect for human dignity of all involved.
