In 2014, a number of healthcare and community based organizations partnered with the Academy to present events, workshops and programs.

The Academy is the home for the Rochester Medical Museum and Archives.


In April 2014, the Academy welcomed the Rochester Medical Museum and Archives (RMMA). The museum is located on the first floor.

We are so pleased to serve as the new site of the museum’s exhibits and archival material, and we are grateful to Rochester General Health System for the opportunity to form this partnership.

There is a tremendous amount of history and many great stories related to these institutions, so it’s important this history has a safe place to live and be available to share,” Britton says. “The health care history in this area provides a great lens for looking at Rochester. It really is reflective of who we are as a community.

               - Kathleen Britton, RMMA Director and Curator

RMMA’s collection consists of archival documents, photographs, costumes, material culture objects, and a series of oral interviews. All items relate to the history of Rochester General Hospital, the former Genesee Hospital, their associated schools of nursing, Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, and close to 20 other organizations whose roots trace back to Rochester General Health System or one of its affiliates.


In February 2014, M&T Bank provided grant support for a new Interprofessional Mentoring Program at the Academy.

This program brings together practicing and retired physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals who are members of the Academy to share their "real world" experiences in practice- meaningful experiences with patients and families and colleagues, personal stories and discussions with students interested in careers in healthcare, trainees and early career healthcare professionals.
