In 2008 Rochester Institute of Technology formed a strategic alliance with Rochester General Health System. Now Rochester General has joined with Unity Health System and other regional providers to form Rochester Regional Health, and the Alliance with RIT is stronger than ever.
The alliance between Rochester Institute of Technology and Rochester General Health System–announced in 2008–will concentrate intellectual resources in a new way for both institutions.
Capitalizing on both organizations’ unique and special strengths, the RIT & Rochester Regional Health Alliance is dedicated to innovation in medical care, education and research for the betterment of individuals in our institutions and the greater community. RIT is Rochester Regional Health’s official academic affiliate and Rochester Regional is the university’s official affiliated clinical partner. We work together to improve the quality and cost of health care delivery, and to demonstrably improve the health of the people of Western New York and the Finger Lakes
The Alliance offers opportunities for faculty and students in existing RIT academic areas such as medical illustration, medical design, biomedical photographic communication, medical informatics, physician assistant education, medical sonography, biomedical science and technology, biochemistry, health systems and biomedical engineering, health and nutrition, health management and public health policy.
