Program History:

NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine traces its roots to W. Kenneth Riland, DO, and a group of visionary osteopathic physicians practicing in the state of New York. Dr. Riland was the personal physician to former President Nixon, Vice President Nelson Rockefeller and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. Dr. Riland and his colleagues saw the establishment of the medical school as a way to promote and strengthen the credibility of osteopathic medicine and leveraged the support of Rockefeller and other political leaders to establish the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1977. The college changed its name to the NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2012.
