Medical school students will have a mouthful when asked where they attend college from now on, as NYU School of Medicine was renamed after dean of the school and NYU Langone Health CEO Robert Grossman on Nov. 4, according to a press release.

Kenneth Langone, chair of the NYU Langone Health Board of Trustees, announced the news at NYU Langone’s annual Violet Ball fundraiser.

“None of the milestones NYU Langone has achieved would have been possible without the boldness, resiliency and the passion for patient care and quality that Bob Grossman brings to this institution,” Langone said, according to the press release. “He always strives to elevate the quality of what we do. He brings out the best in people and he’s brought out the best in this institution.”

Under Grossman’s tenure, NYU School of Medicine expanded by 8 million square feet, became the first medical school to offer free tuition and opened NYU Long Island School of Medicine, which offers a three-year medical degree program focused on primary care.
