MD Admissions at NYU School of Medicine Revisit for Admitted MD Students

NYU School of Medicine notifies MD degree program applicants of their acceptance starting in January. Admitted medical students are invited to campus to revisit the program in April. This three-day visit is designed to give you a better understanding of what makes our school unique, as well as a chance to tour our facilities and meet with deans, faculty, and classmates.

Scheduled activities explore diversity and inclusion on campus, explain NYU School of Medicine’s history and future, and highlight innovations in the way we train our medical students. In addition to presentations from faculty and leadership, we plan many social activities that allow you to interact with your peers and explore New York City. 

In the spring, we send admitted students the agenda of scheduled events and instructions for confirming attendance. Explore the activities we have planned for 2017.
