Page 2 NYMC 2010–2011 Annual Report A Shared Vision for Our Future Page 3 T he Board of Trustees, whose members remained at their posts until the day New York Medical College transitioned to its new affiliation with Touro, may be counted among the most loyal and dedicated lay leaders ever to gather around a conference table. Like the founders, who carved a vision for a new kind of edu- cational institution out of the turmoil of their times, and who then worked tirelessly to usher that dream to reality, these trusted servants have given of themselves, their time and expertise, their connections and their influence, and even of their personal worth, to lead the College to a new dawn of prosperity and growth. Many of them served for a decade or more, and after each of their names we have listed the year they joined the board. This group of stalwart individuals deserves our thanks for their past service and for their contin- ued involvement with New York Medical College. From left:Unswerving Dedication: Gerard D.

Each member has a full plate of responsibilities that comprise the inner workings of this academic institution. They are the senior leadership team, the advisors and lieutenants who carry out the daily round of activities to keep New York Medical College moving forward in its mission. Their years of service —in some cases decades—could almost qualify them for “frequent flyer” status, navigating the years of plenty, the years of struggle, and now the years of transition. Now that their number comprises members of Touro College, they are looking forward to the synergy that comes from fresh approaches and shared goals, a sensation that has already made itself felt in their midst.

Page 6 NYMC 2010–2011 Annual Report A Shared Vision for Our Future Page 7 O nce an agreement was signed in December 2009, setting forth the intention of the two institutions to join forces, several groups of individuals commenced the work known as “the transition.” An ad hoc committee of representatives from all corners of the university began meeting to advise College leaders of the needs of all constituencies, ensuring that every voice would be heard. Then, once the actual work of transition was underway, a Transition Steering Committee began meeting with a second set of groups whose primary objective was to advise, support and carry out the directives set forth by the steering commit- tee. These Task Forces and Work Groups met periodically throughout the months that followed, addressing financial operations, religious affairs, communications, health sciences education, research, governance and regulatory matters. The resulting smooth transition that reached its pinnacle on May 25, 2011, bears the handprints of these numerous dedicated individuals. *See key at left to identify groups and committees.a committed cross section: Back row, from left: Michael A.
