How do I schedule a Zoom Meeting?

Overview Summary

As our reliance on virtual meetings increases and the number of participants for many sessions grows, it is critical that the appropriate technologies are leveraged.  One of these technologies is Zoom Video Communications. 

Zoom is NYP’s on-line Virtual Meeting Platform which brings staff together, face-to-face, with Video Conferencing, Audio Conferencing and Screen Sharing from anywhere at any time. By default, all management staff has already been granted access; however, this service is not limited to management staff.  Any NYP, CUIMC or WCM employee needing access may have it by going to NYPRequest or calling our IT Service Desk at 212-746-HELP (4357).
