“The college has flourished under the stewardship of Dr. Alan Kadish. What Touro has accomplished in the last 40 years borders on the edge of magic.” In this interview with Touro’s president Alan Kadish in Long Island Jewish World, one of the subjects that President Kadish highlights is Touro’s interest in research. He gives several examples of research initiatives. He states that bringing New York Medical College into the Touro System in 2011 was in part because of NYMC’s strong research efforts.
