New York College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYCOM) is the osteopathic medical college of the New York Institute of Technology located in Old Westbury, Long Island, NY. Established in 1977, NYCOM is one of only two accredited medical institutions in Nassau County, New York (The other being Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine). The College has clinical affiliations with multiple hospitals throughout Long Island, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Upstate New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Furthermore, NYCOM provides its alumni and other osteopathic medical graduates with residency and internship training opportunities through the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine Educational Consortium (NYCOMEC). The New York College of Osteopathic Medicine also provides physicians educated in countries other than the United States the opportunity to obtain medical training in the United States through its Advanced Program for Emigre Physicians (APEP). After completion of the 4-year APEP program, physicians with foreign credentials receive the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) degree and are able to apply to DO and MD residency match programs as American graduates.
NYCOM has the second largest total enrollment among osteopathic medical schools and third largest total enrollment among all medical schools (MD and DO) in the United States.
History and Founding of the College:
The College was founded in 1977 through the efforts of Dr. W. Kenneth Riland, New York State Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller and members of Rockefeller family. The College, granted accreditation by the American Osteopathic Association, was chartered under New York State law through very strong efforts by Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller. In 1978 Nelson Rockefeller contributed $250,000 to the college's general endowment fund and in 1979 Laurance S. Rockefeller contributed the same amount. The founding of NYCOM was strongly a result of the close friendship between Nelson Rockefeller and W. Kenneth Riland. Dr. Riland served as Mr. Rockefeller’s personal physician during his governorship of New York as well during his vice-presidency in the Ford administration. To honor the efforts and contributions of Gov. Rockefeller, the Nelson A. Rockefeller Academic Center (NYCOM I Building) was dedicated in 1979. The work of Dr. Philip F. Fleisher, first Dean of NYCOM and Dean for the next 16 years, was influential in the growth and success of the school. The New York College of Osteopathic Medicine graduated its first class on June 11, 1981, awarding degrees to 26 men and eight women. The commencement exercises at the College were held on the athletic field of what was once the estate of Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney. The guest speaker, Dr. Theodore Cooper, former dean of Cornell University Medical College, warned of a new atmosphere where "a public is re-evaluating its opinion of physicians.' "The reverence for the doctor is beginning to wane," Dr. Cooper said. An honorary Doctor of Laws degree was awarded to Dr. W. Kenneth Riland, an osteopathic physician, who was then the chairman of the NYCOM Board of Governors. Dr. Riland was honored for being a "prime mover" in the establishment of the College. The W. Kenneth Riland Academic Health Care Center (NYCOM II Building), completed in 1984, stands on the campus, a working clinic as well as a teaching hospital -- "a living memorial," in the words of NYIT President Matthew Schure.
To ensure adequate space for a growing medical college as well as to provide students access to new technologies, the Hannah and Charles Serota Academic Center (NYCOM III Building) began construction in 1999. In 2001, students and faculty began to utilize the building for Basic and Pre-Clinical Science lectures, as well as the Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine Laboratory.
