Health Information for New Medical Students

NYU School of Medicine requires that incoming medical students meet mandatory health entrance requirements prior to matriculation. Newly admitted students should begin this process as soon as possible to allow ample time to gather health information, complete necessary screening, and receive needed immunizations.

Required  Preadmission Health Forms

Complete the mandatory NYU School of Medicine health packet to document your medical history, physical examination, blood work, and the receipt of certain vaccinations prior to your arrival. The following elements must be provided to Student Health Service:

We advise incoming students to schedule an appointment with a healthcare provider (cannot be a family member) to review the mandatory health packet information and confirm that all preadmission health requirements are met.

We strongly recommend that all medical students receive a meningococcal conjugate vaccine (at least one dose of Menveo® or Menactra® after the age of 16 but within the previous 10 years); however, students can submit a meningococcal vaccine refusal form to waive this requirement.

How to Submit Required Health Information

Submit all required health documents to the following address:

NYU School of Medicine Student Health Service
334 East 25th Street, Suite 103
New York, NY 10010

If you have questions about health entrance requirements, contact the Student Health Service at 212-263-5489.
