With a history that can be tracked back to the 1976, classes at the New York College of Health Professions first began in the year 1981. While the main campus is located in Long Island, New York, the school has additional branches in metropolitan NY too. Courses offered include undergraduate, graduate and certificate degrees in the fields of holistic medicine and Eastern exercises like yoga and tai chi. The school aims to explore alternative healthcare options and incorporate Eastern healing arts into the Western framework. Students do their internships at the in-house clinic, which is one of the largest of out-patient teaching clinical facilities in the country. As students at New York College prepare for careers in alternate medicine, they also have the larger NYC area to wind down, with options for both quiet mornings and an active night life just around the next corner.
