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. Our medical Curriculum for the 21st Century, C21, combines advances in learning strategies, emerging technologies, and informatics solutions to fulfill our trifold mission: to teach, to serve, and to discover.
Our groundbreaking accelerated three-year MD program, launched in 2013, reduces 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.
Our approach to education is fueled by our commitment to diversity, innovation, and professional development.
