New York Medical College

New York Medical College is a private biomedical health sciences university based in Valhalla, New York. Founded in 1860, it is a member of the Touro University System. NYMC offers advanced degrees through its three schools: the School of Medicine, the Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences and the School of Health Sciences and Practice. Total enrollment is 1,660 students in addition to clinical fellows. NYMC employs 1,450 part-time and voluntary faculty; the university has more than 12,000 alumni active in medical practice, healthcare administration, public health and research. Part of the Touro College and University System since 2011, New York Medical College is located on a shared suburban 600-acre campus with its academic medical center, Westchester Medical Center and the Maria Fareri Children's Hospital. Many of NYMC’s faculty provide patient care and conduct research at WMC. New York Medical College's university hospital, Metropolitan Hospital Center, in the Upper East side neighborhood of Yorkville and East Harlem in Manhattan, has been affiliated with NYMC since it was founded in 1875, representing the oldest partnership between a hospital and a private medical school in the United States.

Metropolitan is part of the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, the largest municipal hospital and healthcare system in the country. With a network of 20+ affiliated hospitals in New York, New Jersey and West Virginia, NYMC's hospital affiliations include large urban medical centers, small suburban clinics, rural medical centers and high-tech regional tertiary care facilities, where medical students and residents are afforded a wide variety of clinical training opportunities. New York Medical College owes its founding in 1860 to a group of civic leaders who believed that medical studies should be practiced with a better understanding of what the patient needs; this group of civic leaders was led by the noted poet William Cullen Bryant, an editor of the New York Evening Post. Bryant was concerned about medical education in New York City, his main concern was with some of the medical practices being used to treat disease, which at the time included bleedings and the administration of strong drugs in too large doses.

Interest in the medical field grew over the next few years due to the United States Civil War, which generated a major need for health related occupations. As a result, the college was founded and opened as the Homeopathic Medical College of the State of New York on the corner of 20th Street and Third Avenue, near Union Square in Manhattan. In the first semester there were 8 professors; the college adopted the name New York Homeopathic Medical College in 1869 and, in 1887, New York Homeopathic Medical College and Hospital. The sister institution known as the New York Medical College and Hospital for Women was founded a few years in 1863 by Clemence Lozier. In 1867, it graduated the first female physician to practice in Canada. Three years in 1870, Susan McKinney Steward graduated as the first African-American female physician in New York State. One of its graduates, Adelaide Wallerstein in the class of 1905 held a law degree, founded the East Side Clinic for Children in 1906; when the Women's College closed in 1918, its students transferred to New York Medical College.

In 1875, Metropolitan Hospital Center opened as a municipal facility on Ward’s Island, staffed by the faculty of New York Medical College. As a university hospital of New York Medical College, this relationship is among the nation’s oldest continuing affiliations between a private medical school and a public hospital. Built by New York Medical College in 1889, the Flower Free Surgical Hospital, was the first teaching hospital in the United States to be owned by a medical college, it was constructed at York Avenue and 63rd Street with funds given by Congressman Roswell P. Flower governor of New York. In 1908 the College changed its name to Flower Hospital. In 1928 the College was the first medical school in the nation to establish a minority scholarship program. By 1935, the College had transferred its outpatient activities to the Fifth Avenue Hospital at Fifth Avenue and 106th Street; the College and Fifth Avenue Hospital merged in 1938 and became New York Medical College and Fifth Avenue Hospitals.

In 1972, New York Medical College moved to Valhalla, at the invitation of the Westchester County government, which desired to build an academic medical center. Completed in 1977, Westchester Medical Center is the main academic medical center of the College; the College became affiliated with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York in 1978, which helped provide financial stability and established a shared commitment for the public good in the area of health care and the health sciences. The College recognized itself in the Catholic tradition and affiliated with several Catholic hospitals; when Flower and Fifth Avenue Hospital closed in 1979, the remaining operations of New York Medical College were transferred to the Valhalla campus. The college shortened its name to New York Medical College in 1982. In 2010, the NYMC community celebrated the 150th anniversary of the founding of NYMC with a year full of sesquicentennial celebration activities. In that same year, it was announced that Touro College, a Jewish-sponsored institution in Manhattan had reached an agreement to assume the sponsorship role for New York Medical College from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York.

Kiryat Netafim

Kiryat Netafim is an Israeli settlement in the northern West Bank. Located about 30 km east of Tel Aviv, it is organised as a community settlement and falls under the jurisdiction of Shomron Regional Council. In 2018 it had a population of 937; the international community considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this. Kiryat Netafim was founded in June 1986, on land belonging to the Palestinian villages of Qarawat Bani Hassan, Haris, by a group of Orthodox Yemenite Jews as another link in a chain of settlements built along the Trans-Samaria Highway and adjacent to the Barkan Industrial Park. Since Kiryat Netafim has lost its homogeneous nature while accepting families from many different backgrounds. In 2009 Peace Now petitioned the Israeli High Court, laid a complaint against the Defence Minister Ehud Barak, to order the demolition of 14 illegal structures built without authorization on public and private Palestinian land.

The Defence ministry replied given approval to construction plans that would legalize the 14 structures. An interim injunction from the High Court on October 1 prohibited construction until the legal issues were settled. A further request was made on December 29 to find the settlers guilty of contempt for breaching the injunction to stop building; the state admitted the fact but requested the breach be ignored because the state had limited resources to regulate settlements and different priorities. In November 2014 Netafim began bulldozing and clearing further Qarawat Bani Hassan territory, under the protecting of IDF troops, in a measure designed to extend the settlement; the community is located in the vicinity of several archaeological sites. The settlement has two kindergartens and one nursery
