Friends of Bioethics

“Friends of Bioethics” include

  • Members of the Westchester County Medical Society
  • Members of the Jewish Orthodox Women’s Medical Association (JOWMA)
  • Alumni of New York Medical College and the New York College of Podiatric Medicine

A fifty percent (50%) tuition reduction is being offered as a membership benefit for you regarding the Master of Science (M.S.) and Advanced Certificate in Bioethics Programs at New York Medical College (NYMC).

The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly emphasized the importance of bioethics in addressing the ethical dilemmas in health care, and it will remain at the forefront for the foreseeable future with an increased demand for bioethics professionals. 

The “Friends of Bioethics” program allows you to nominate yourself or individuals working in your practice who have an interest in bioethics and a desire to pursue that interest by taking courses in our Bioethics program.

Students who are nominated will be accepted into the Bioethics program provided they meet the minimum admissions requirements, and will be entitled to a 50 percent tuition reduction throughout their bioethics studies at NYMC so long as they remain in good academic standing per the program’s requirements.

For additional information on the “Friends of Bioethics” program or to nominate yourself or an employee as a student, please contact the bioethics Office of Admissions at shsp_admissions@nymc.edu  or (914) 594-4510.

An e-mail request with the appropriate documentation must be submitted every term upon registration to bursar@nymc.edu or faxed to 914-594-3477.  Tuition discounts are applicable to tuition charges only and are not retroactive under any circumstances.  Discounts requests will not be accepted after the first week of the term and will not be applied to prior terms regardless of eligibility. 

We are happy to offer this collaborative effort to provide affordable graduate-level education to address the current needs in the realm of bioethics.
