NYU Medical School

NYU School of Medicine is associated with a multitude of institutions that all contribute to our culture of service, dedication, and quality.

Bellevue Hospital is the oldest public hospital in the United States and it has been at the center of our clinical and educational mission. A flagship institution for the New York City Public Hospital System, Bellevue is all about service, about giving the best care possible to patients no matter who they are or how much money they have. Patients at Bellevue, Tisch Hospital, and the Veterans Affairs Medical Center all receive care from the same faculty, house staff, and students. That synergy, developed over more than 150 years of service, is deep in the culture of NYU and shapes everything we do.

Today, NYU Langone Medical Center also includes the Hospital for Joint Diseases and the Rusk Institute for Rehabilitation Medicine. We are dedicated to giving all patients access to the best healthcare services in the world and making sure our students are part of this institution.

This website is a hub for student activities here at the NYU School of Medicine. From well over 80 student run clubs and organizations to student government and daily student life, NYU School of Medicine is dedicated to its students and the broader community. This website is run by students, for students, because we love this school and want to make the best of it!

Medical Education of New York University Medical School

New York University School of Medicine has recently implemented the curriculum for the 21st century. The new curriculum consists of 18 months of basic science and two and a half years of clinical training. Students take the USMLE Step 1 exam after the clerkship year (with the exception of MD/PhD students, who take it before starting their PhD work). This allows students additional time to take electives, conduct research, or go on away rotations. Other features of the curriculum include NYU3T (a joint program with the New York University College of Nursing) and PLACE (Patient-Based Longitudinal Ambulatory Care Experience).

The NYU School of Medicine also offers several 5-year joint degree programs, some of which can be optionally completed in 4 years.:
  • MD/MPA in Health Policy and Management (with the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service)
  • MD/MPH in Global Health
  • MD/MBA in General Management (with the New York University Stern School of Business)
  • MD/MA in Bioethics
  • MD/MSc in Clinical Investigation
Since 1964, NYU School of Medicine has offered MD/PhD dual degree training through the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP).

NYU Langone Medical Center, a world-class, patient-centered, integrated, academic medical center, is one of the nation's premier centers for excellence in clinical care, biomedical research and medical education. Located in the heart of Manhattan, NYU Langone is composed of four hospitals – Tisch Hospital, its flagship acute care facility; Rusk Rehabilitation; the Hospital for Joint Diseases, one of only five hospitals in the nation dedicated to orthopaedics and rheumatology; and Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital, a comprehensive pediatric hospital supporting a full array of children's health services across the medical center – plus the NYU School of Medicine, which since 1841 has trained thousands of physicians and scientists who have helped to shape the course of medical history. The medical center's tri-fold mission to serve, teach and discover is achieved 365 days a year through the seamless integration of a culture devoted to excellence in patient care, education and research.
