Medicine (MD)

Program Description

As medical students at NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine, you learn the basic and clinical sciences that underpin all medical education, while simultaneously gaining a fundamental understanding of health systems science—the study of how healthcare is delivered, how healthcare providers work together, and strategies to deliver safer, higher-quality patient care.

Our curriculum emphasizes establishing integrated care pathways—a patient care plan that details the essential steps in treating patients who have specific clinical conditions across many different medical disciplines—and improving communication and collaboration between community-based primary care providers and hospital-based specialists.

As a student in our program, you earn your medical degree more quickly and at a substantially reduced cost compared with students at other medical schools. Please view our academic calendars. As a graduate, you are prepared to transform how medicine is practiced.

NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine seeks applicants who excel academically and exhibit robust intellectual curiosity, as evidenced by the rigor, breadth, and depth of their coursework. We encourage students majoring in any field of study, including the humanities and social sciences, to apply.

Because we recognize the diverse range of educational experiences of our applicants, we do not mandate prerequisite coursework. Instead, our admission committee evaluates the academic preparation of applicants to assure they have the foundational knowledge to succeed in our rigorous accelerated three-year program. Applicants are expected to demonstrate a high level of proficiency in biology, physics, chemistry, genetics, statistics, English, psychology, and sociology. These courses are strongly recommended as part of a broad premedical curriculum.

You must also meet our technical standards, which define the physical, mental, emotional, and social abilities that support success in medical school, and pass a criminal background check to ensure patient safety.

Before finalizing your matriculation to NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine, all students must satisfactorily complete the AAMC-facilitated Criminal Background Check, which is conducted at no additional cost. The AAMC recommends that all U.S. medical schools procure this background check to ascertain the ability of accepted applicants to become licensed physicians in the future, enhance the safety and wellbeing of patients, and to ensure the public's continuing trust in the medical profession.
