New York Medical College
The New York Medical College is a private professional school located in Valhalla, New York. The college is located north of New York City in Westchester County, New York. The school is the fusion of the original New York Medical College, founded in 1860, and the New York Medical College for Women, founded in 1863.
The college offers programs in medicine, basic medical sciences and public health.
Due to past support from the Catholic Archdiocese of New York, the college has indicated that it is an institution "in the Catholic tradition."
In 2004, the faculty senate, the school's Board of Trustees, and the Board of Governors refused to approve the formation of a student group dedicated to gay, lesbian, and transgender issues. In a written statement, the administration defended its actions, asserting that "the agenda of the club is to promote the lifestyle of GLBT people in conflict with the standards and values of the College." Despite protests, the Westchester County District Attorney has cleared the school of any criminal actions.
