New York University School of Medicine (NYU School of Medicine) opened in 1841 in the heart of New York City. Since its opening it has transformed into a mega-center for physician training, patient care and research. In recent years, NYU School of Medicine incorporated numerous city hospitals, veteran hospitals and research institutions. Notably, in 2008 the mega-center for health care was renamed the Elaine A. and Kenneth G. Langone Medical Center.
