Facilities

New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYITCOM) offers medical education in two scenic locations: Old Westbury, N.Y. and Jonesboro, A.R.

The New York campus is located on the beautiful, wooded, suburban Long Island (Old Westbury) campus of New York Institute of Technology. This location makes access to New York City easy while offering a less hectic lifestyle on a daily basis. State-of-the-art research and clinical institutions on Long Island and New York City enhance the educational experience and opportunities. The New York campus facilities occupy most of a three-building complex on Long Island: The Nelson A. Rockefeller Academic Center houses an auditorium, the Dean's office, the medical library, faculty offices, and research laboratories. In addition, the offices of the Vice President for Medical Affairs and Global Health, the Doctor-Patient Continuum Curriculum classrooms, and the Academic Technologies and Media Services Groups are located in this building.

Also located on the Long Island (Old Westbury) campus, the W. Kenneth Riland Academic Health Care Center houses a large auditorium, the anatomy laboratories, several faculty research laboratories and offices, animal facilities, student study areas, student lounges, a cafeteria, and the Institute for Clinical Competence (ICC), which trains and assesses students from their first year to their graduation in a patient simulation learning and assessment center. Adjacent to the W. Kenneth Riland Academic Health Care Center is the Hannah and Charles Serota Academic Center, the newest of the NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine facilities. Opened in 1999, this building houses two state-of-the-art auditoriums—the Mollie Rogers and William Rogers auditoriums—and a modern osteopathic manipulation teaching laboratory. In addition, this facility houses faculty and administrative offices, the student government office, several conference rooms, student lockers, changing rooms, and a small gym for students. In addition, students have access to campus playing fields, basketball and tennis courts, an additional campus fitness center, and a running track.

NYITCOM at Arkansas State University, located in Jonesboro, A.R., is NYITCOM's newest location and offers advanced academic technology—linking classrooms, faculty, and students in New York and Arkansas. NYITCOM at Arkansas State University is housed in Wilson Hall, a beautiful art deco style building, which has been fully renovated with state-of-the-art facilities, to optimize premier medical education. The site also includes osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) and anatomy labs, as well as patient simulation and robotics labs. NYITCOM at Arkansas State University provides opportunities to work and learn in urban and rural communities in one of the most medically underserved areas of the country during clerkship and resident training in leading hospitals and ambulatory health networks throughout the state and region. In addition, the Arkansas campus location offers the best of Arkansas State University's resources, including on- and off-campus housing, dining services, libraries, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a health center, and access to athletic and cultural events.

The NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine medical libraries, at both the Long Island (Old Westbury) and Arkansas (Jonesboro) locations, house thousands of volumes of journals, textbooks, and other references and subscribe to hundreds of online resources. Access and training is available to all College of Osteopathic Medicine community members in person and online. The libraries also house photocopiers that require the use of the student's ID card instead of currency. The medical libraries are open for extended hours and professional librarians are available to advise, assist, and train all patrons.

At the Long Island (Old Westbury) campus medical library, students may borrow a laptop computer for limited time frames. Wisser Library, the main library of New York Institute of Technology's Long Island campus, provides access to thousands of nonmedical books, research literature, and other general facilities.

All College of Osteopathic Medicine buildings are wired for wireless network access.

Ambulatory Centers

NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine operates two primary care centers in New York. The on-campus facility in Old Westbury, N.Y. is known as the Academic Health Care Center and the facility in Central Islip, N.Y. is called the Family Health Care Center. These centers are staffed by faculty from NYITCOM. The Academic Health Care Center provides clinical services geared toward students, faculty, staff, and their family members, in addition to the general community. These services include Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Osteopathic Medicine, Neurology, Genetic Counseling, Psychology, Acupuncture, Breast Health Services, Physical Therapy, Occupational and Speech Therapy. In addition, the Academic Health Care Center also houses the Adele Smithers Parkinson's Disease Treatment Center and the newly formed Center for Sports Medicine. In Central Islip, the Family Health Care Center provides primary care, including pediatrics, for the student body, faculty, staff, and the community.

The Adele Smithers Parkinson's Disease Treatment Center provides innovative comprehensive treatment, promotes community awareness and Parkinson's disease education, fosters scientific studies and medical research, and perhaps most importantly, helps patients achieve and maintain the best quality of life possible while coping with their disease.

The mission of the Center for Sports Medicine is to deliver high-quality and personalized care in order to prevent injury, optimize performance, and provide wellness guidance and support. New equipment in the Sports Medicine Center allows for evaluation of body composition, metabolic testing, bone density and fracture risk, lean muscle mass, adipose and visceral fat percentages, as well as the maximal rate of oxygen consumption.

Students attending NYITCOM at Arkansas State University have access to health services offered through the Student Health Center of Arkansas State University.
