Join us at the kickoff event for the renaming of the NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine on Wednesday, Dec. 5, 3 p.m. outside of the Rockefeller Building in Old Westbury, N.Y. All faculty and staff members are invited to a sign dedication ceremony. Effective January 1, the new name replaces the 35-year-old college’s former name, New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, commonly known as NYCOM.
“The new name positions NYIT and its College of Osteopathic Medicine for a future that includes continuing expansion of our research base, continuing innovations in interdisciplinary programs, and most importantly, educating future physicians using cutting-edge technology and curricular innovations," said Vice President of Health Sciences and Medical Affairs Barbara Ross-Lee, D.O. “Part of this future includes connecting more effectively with all of our alumni around the state, the country, and the world.”
