Student Services

At New York Medical College (NYMC), we recruit the strongest students and offer them a skilled faculty and robust curriculum, plus extensive hands-on opportunities to prepare them to be effective and successful professionals. We also fully support our students personally with a breadth of services to address any goals, needs, special concerns or questions they may have. Whether of an academic, emotional, physical, social, spiritual or financial nature, we offer compassionate staff, valuable resources and supportive advice and counseling.

Please note: Any student requiring accommodations due to a diagnosed disability or illness should make an appointment with Disability Services to get their requested accommodations approved.
