Welcome! Are you seeking a career in physical therapy or speech-language pathology, or in a public health field? Our focus will be intently on you—ensuring that your experience, both in and out of the classroom, provides you with the knowledge and skills you need to move forward in your chosen career.

As you will recognize, our faculty and staff are exceptional.  They are committed and dedicated to education and to enhancing the health and well-being of others.  Choosing NYMC will allow you to partner with this faculty, as well as with alumni and industry leaders, who will become your mentors and colleagues.

Many are actively involved with county health departments and health systems in the greater New York area, as well as national and international organizations.  Opportunities for real-world experience and collaboration abound in all of our programs, along with the chance to do important research that can lead to real change.

AT NYMC, you will begin to make a true difference in your world.

You will also be in good company here.  Our students are clinicians, administrators, analysts, and researchers. They work in hospitals, health departments, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, community agencies, and insurance companies.  They share your interest in improving health and health care in their organizations and their communities.

I invite you to explore our website and connect with us.  I am confident that NYMC is the best next step in your career. And I am confident that, after a little exploration, you will agree.
