How to Apply to the MD Program
NYU Grossman School of Medicine participates in the American Medical College Application Service® (AMCAS®), a centralized application processing service of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). AMCAS® verifies and distributes student applications to medical schools.
You must submit one complete set of transcripts to AMCAS®. Please do not send transcripts directly to NYU Grossman School of Medicine’s Office of Admissions unless you are accepted.
Detailed information on how to fill out each section of the AMCAS® application, certify and submit your application, and monitoring your application status are available from the AAMC. You must register with the AAMC and create an account to begin.
Please allow up to two weeks after submitting your AMCAS® application to receive our secondary application.
NYU Grossman School of Medicine Secondary Application
After you finish the AMCAS® application, you must complete our secondary application. If you have selected NYU Grossman School of Medicine as a choice, AMCAS® sends us your completed primary application. We then send you information about how to complete the secondary application using AMP, a secure online application portal.
To complete the secondary NYU Grossman School of Medicine application, a $100 nonrefundable application fee is required, payable by credit card, unless you have obtained a fee waiver from the AAMC Fee Assistance Program.
We are providing all applicants with required questions for the secondary application ahead of time to help expedite the application process.
Accelerated Three Year MD Pathway Application
NYU Grossman School of Medicine is one of the first U.S. medical schools to offer an accelerated three-year MD pathway and the first medical school in the country to offer direct progression into any of our residency programs. Upon meeting the academic and professional standards for graduation from medical school, you will be ranked to match into an NYU Grossman School of Medicine residency program through the National Resident Matching Program®. Should you choose to rank us, you would match into a position at NYU Grossman School of Medicine.
If you want to pursue the three-year MD, you can submit your tertiary three-year MD application at the same time as your secondary NYU Grossman School of Medicine application. We also accept applications to the three-year MD program after enrollment in order to provide you with additional opportunities to enter the pathway. Applying early maximizes your chance of being accepted in the residency program of your choice.
In addition to the tertiary application for the three-year MD program, in which you identify the residency program of your choice, you also complete two essays detailing your interest in and qualifications for that residency program.
Dual MD/Master’s Degree Applications
We offer several dual MD/master’s degree programs that give you the option of completing a graduate degree in either four or five years as part of your MD degree.
If you would like to pursue one of these options, you indicate your interest on your AMCAS® application. You must first be accepted to NYU Grossman School of Medicine and can then apply to the master’s portion of the dual degree program after matriculation.
We currently offer the following dual MD/master’s degrees:
- MD/MPA in health policy and management, in partnership with NYU Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service
- MD/MPH in global health leadership and the MD/MA in bioethics, in partnership with NYU College of Global Public Health
- MD/MS in biomedical informatics through the Vilcek Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences
- MD/MS in translational research through our Clinical and Translational Science Institute
- MD/MBA in general management, in partnership with NYU Stern School of Business
