Conditionally Guaranteed Early Acceptance to Residency
Our accelerated three-year MD degree program provides students the option to fast-track their professional path with conditionally guaranteed early acceptance to one of four NYU Long Island School of Medicine primary care specialty residencies that are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME):
- Internal Medicine Residency
- Pediatrics Residency
- Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency
- General Surgery Residency
On the NYU Long Island secondary application, you are asked to indicate your primary care specialty residency of choice. As part of our holistic review process, the admissions committee seeks to identify applicants who demonstrate the insight, understanding, and motivation to pursue a selected residency.
Your acceptance to one of these four residencies is finalized in your third year through participation in the National Resident Matching Program® (also known as The Match®). All students who make satisfactory academic progress and meet professional standards are guaranteed to match into the selected NYU Long Island School of Medicine residency program should you chose to rank us.
NYU Long Island School of Medicine accepts applications from U.S. citizens, permanent residents and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). We do not accept applications from international students, nor do we accept advanced standing transfer requests. Students who are currently enrolled in any medical school or have previously withdrawn or been dismissed from any medical school for any reason are ineligible to apply.
