NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine's mission is to develop preeminent physician leaders and a diverse workforce through scholarship and innovative medical education design anchored by the principles of primary care and health systems science. The school seeks to enroll students of diverse backgrounds, life experiences, and perspectives who demonstrate a commitment to future practice in the primary care disciplines of internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, and general surgery.

The holistic admissions approach enables a broadened lens through which the program can learn about applicants and better assess how premedical experiences, personal attributes, and academic metrics align with the primary care mission and innovative three-year accelerated educational program. There is also interest in learning more about the life journeys of applicants, any challenges they may have faced along their path, and how they hope to contribute to the medical profession and a community of engaged learners.

Applications are encouraged from people who are from groups underrepresented in medicine, first-generation college students, those from disadvantaged backgrounds, or who may have taken a nontraditional path toward medicine as well as those who have ties to the community served by the medical school.
