Education at NYU School of Medicine
At NYU School of Medicine, our commitment to innovation has led us to bold new ways of bridging the gap between basic science research, medical education, and quality of patient care. With our Curriculum for the 21st Century, C21, we combine advances in learning strategies, emerging technologies, and informatics solutions to fulfill our trifold mission: to teach, to serve, and to discover.
Every student enrolled in our MD degree program receives a full-tuition scholarship, regardless of merit or financial need, that covers the majority of the cost of attendance. Our full-tuition scholarships make it possible for aspiring physicians to choose a specialty based on their talent and inclinations to better serve the communities who need it most, and to more easily pursue scientific breakthroughs that improve how we care for patients. We aim to turn the best and brightest future physicians into leaders with the potential to transform healthcare.
Our groundbreaking accelerated three-year MD program, launched in 2013, reduces the traditional medical school curriculum by one full year, with the ability to opt in during your first year of medical school. With our four- and five-year pathways to the MD degree, including dual degree programs, we offer unparalleled flexibility to customize your medical training in ways that align with your professional interests.
We’re continuing to reshape medical curriculum to solve today’s biggest challenges in healthcare. Our Institute for Innovations in Medical Education recently launched a “Healthcare by the Numbers” curriculum designed to educate first- and second-year medical students about the many ways in which “big data”—drawing meaningful information from large public data sets—can inform and improve clinical care.
Join us in an educational experience that integrates clinical skills, quality, and evidence-based medicine, and emphasizes the importance of patient-centered care to inform and enhance healthcare in the 21st century.
