New York Medical College, Westchester Medical Center Health Network sign academic affiliation agreement

Valhalla-based New York Medical College and the Westchester Medical Center Health Network entered into a long-term academic affiliation to strengthen both organizations' academic medicine, clinical care and research programs.

Under the 12-year agreement, Westchester Medical Center, Maria Fareri Children's Hospital and the network's Behavioral Health Center — all in Valhalla — will serve as the primary teaching sites for NYMC medical students. NYMC officials will also aim to help other hospitals within the network provide a similar level of education for future students.

The organizations also plan to collaborate on additional clinical research initiatives.

"On any given day more than one-fourth of NYMC's third- and fourth-year medical students complete their clinical clerkships at WMCHealth hospitals, along with students in other clinical disciplines. With a shared faculty and jointly conducted research and educational activities, there is a great deal of partnership between our two organizations. This agreement codifies our already long-standing relationship," said NYMC's Chancellor and CEO Edward Halperin, MD.
