Established in 1911 as the New York School of Chiropody, an educational center in the emerging medical field of podiatry, the New York College of Podiatric Medicine (NYCPD) is the first school of its kind in the United States. Both the college and its field of expertise underwent intensive reform due to the efforts of the NYCPD's first president, Dr. Maurice J. Lewi - a pioneer in the field of podiatry. Since then, the NYCPD has become the premier podiatric medical school in the nation. Currently, more than 25 percent of all active podiatrists in the U.S. are graduates of the NYCPD.
Located in the neighborhood of Harlem in Manhattan, the NYCPD has close affiliations with several New York City health care institutions. Students living in university housing or an off campus apartment near campus have access to facilities and training at health centers like the Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons and the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation along with many others. Students receive instruction at several affiliated teaching hospitals and the Foot Center of New York, one of the largest podiatric clinics in the world.
Student living and university living at the NYCPD places students in the heart of New York City - within close proximity of the area's world-famous restaurants, museums, landmarks and entertainment centers.
