The New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYIT-COM) is a private, non-profit medical school for osteopathic medicine located in Old Westbury, Long Island in the U.S. state of New York. Founded in 1977, NYIT-COM is an academic division of the New York Institute of Technology. Formerly known as the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, it is one of the largest medical schools in the United States.
The college opened in 1977, as the first osteopathic medical school the state of New York, offering the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree (D.O.). The college was established through the efforts of Dr. W. Kenneth Riland, New York State Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller and members of Rockefeller family. The college was granted accreditation by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), and was chartered under New York State law through the efforts of Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller. In 1978, Nelson Rockefeller contributed $250,000 to the college's general endowment fund and in 1979 Laurance Rockefeller contributed the same amount. The friendship between Nelson Rockefeller and W. Kenneth Riland was an important factor in the founding of the medical college. Dr. Riland served as Mr. Rockefeller’s personal physician during his governorship of New York as well during his vice-presidency in the Ford administration. To honor the efforts and contributions of Governor Rockefeller, the Nelson A. Rockefeller Academic Center was dedicated in 1979.
The inaugural class of 34 students graduated on June 11, 1981. An honorary Doctor of Laws degree was awarded to Dr. W. Kenneth Riland, who was honored for his role in the establishment of the college. The W. Kenneth Riland Academic Health Care Center, completed in 1984, is located on campus and serves as a clinic and teaching hospital.
In 1999, construction began on campus for the new Hannah and Charles Serota Academic Center. In 2001, the building opened for basic and pre-clinical science lectures, as well as the osteopathic manipulative medicine laboratory.
On December 5, 2012, the 35 year old name of the school was officially changed from New York College of Osteopathic Medicine of New York Institute of Technology (NYCOM of NYIT) to the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine).
