Touro College Announces Plan to Add NY College of Podiatric Medicine

(Courtesy of Touro College) New York College of Podiatric Medicine (NYCPM) will join the Touro College & University System and New York Medical College, the institutions announced today. Touro president Dr. Alan Kadish and NYCPM president Mr. Louis Levine signed a membership agreement in an online ceremony to mark the occasion.

Founded in 1911, the New York College of Podiatric Medicine was the nation’s first medical college devoted to educating and training doctors of podiatric medicine. It combines outstanding classroom instruction with clinical training in one of the world’s largest foot care clinics. Mr. Levine said, “This bodes well for both institutions. I believe that with Touro’s help we can bring New York College of Podiatric Medicine to even greater heights.”

Dr. Kadish said, “As healthcare moves towards a team approach, podiatrists will become increasingly important. Touro healthcare educational systems and our clinical healthcare delivery systems can integrate New York College of Podiatric Medicine in a way that improves patient care and transforms the experience for students and faculty.”

Touro serves over 18,000 students across 35 schools. Touro’s highly regarded health sciences, dental, pharmacy as well as osteopathic and allopathic medical schools make it a national leader in comprehensive health education and care.

“Touro is known for its ability and willingness to innovate rapidly and we are adept at finding the best educational techniques and solutions to meet the needs we identify. Some of the best job opportunities currently exist in the healthcare field, and our goal is to offer an array of choices and prime our students for success. Educating approximately 7,700 students annually in the health sciences, Touro is fast becoming one of the largest healthcare educational systems in the U.S. Adding podiatric medicine to our existing network of medical and health science schools and programs will serve to augment and strengthen our academic offerings,” said Dr. Kadish.

The transaction is expected to close on July 1, 2021, once it is approved by the U.S. Department of Education, the New York State Department of Education, other regulators and relevant accreditors.
