Training Sites


New York Medical College and its primary clinical training sites consist of:

  • NYC H+H/Metropolitan 
  • Westchester Medical Center 

The clinical training sites provide modern facilities for comprehensive oral and maxillofacial surgical inpatient and outpatient services. 

Rotational sites of the Program include Touro College of Dental Medicine and Hackensack University Medical Center. 



NYC H+H/Metropolitan is located on the upper east side of Manhattan between First and Second Avenues and 97th and 99th Streets. It is a 338-bed hospital servicing the East Harlem community. Residents while assigned here benefit primarily from a busy outpatient practice and a new surgicenter suite for outpatient sedations. The site offers digital panoramic, cephalometric and direct digital intraoral dental imaging, CBCT, digital medical imaging and a digital impressioning system, plus electronic dental and medical records. The 24-month training experience includes working directly with a surgical orthodontist on orthognathic cases as well as the OMFS and restorative dental teams in the areas of dental implants and grafting. In addition, Metropolitan has a busy OMFS outpatient practice. On average, the trainees receive operating room block time 2 days per week. The assigned third year senior resident functions as the lead resident and gains commensurate experience as a primary surgeon and familiarity with running a service prior to their fourth year.

Westchester Medical Center (WMC) is located on the Grasslands Reservation off the Sprain Brook Parkway in Valhalla, New York; New York Medical College School of Medicine is adjacent to the academic medical center on the Valhalla campus (~20 miles north of New York City). WMC is a 652-bed tertiary care Level 1 Trauma Center located in Westchester County serving the 7 county Hudson Valley region. The facility provides residents with 24 months of advanced surgical experience treating major facial trauma, pathology, facial reconstruction, cosmetic surgery and administering outpatient sedation. In 2017, WMC completed a new, state of the art Dental/Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery surgicenter for exclusive use by the program, which includes five operatories, two of which are dedicated solely to the OMFS program. While on service at WMC, residents have dedicated operating room days to focus on their surgical experience. In the clinical environment, residents complete a wide scope of outpatient oral and maxillofacial surgery including dental alveolar surgery, dental implants, Botox/fillers, and routine IV sedation/general anesthesia. Residents work closely with experienced general practitioners for complex implant treatment plans and prosthetic reconstruction.
