VALHALLA, N.Y., -- New York Medical College and the Westchester Medical Center Health Network announced Wednesday a 12-year agreement that they hope will strengthen medical research and clinical care.
Under the agreement, hospitals on Westchester Medical Center's Valhalla campus will be the primary teaching sites for the clinical education of students of New York Medical College and Touro College affiliated programs.
Additionally, New York Medical College will facilitate the expansion of that education to other hospitals in the Westchester Medical Center Health Network. They will also collaborate to foster clinical research.
”Westchester Medical Center Health hospitals have a history of academic cooperation with New York Medical College and we’re happy this agreement will keep this relationship strong for more than a decade,” said Michael Israel, President, and CEO of the Westchester Medical Center Health network.
