We train exceptional primary care physicians and leaders in health systems.

Welcome to NYU Long Island School of Medicine—a partnership between New York University and NYU Langone Health. We educate exemplary physicians, residents, fellows, and academic leaders in primary care with the training they need to deliver outstanding patient care and become authorities in local and national health systems. Our mission prioritizes diversity and equity in primary care and community healthcare.

Our innovative three-year MD curriculum combines medical education, research, and quality patient care, and reduces the traditional medical school curriculum by one full year. We are proud to offer Full-Tuition Scholarships for three years to all matriculated students who maintain satisfactory academic progress and professionalism standards, regardless of merit or financial need. By covering the majority of the cost of attendance, we hope to make it more financially feasible for medical students to choose careers in the important fields of primary care, internal medicine, pediatrics, and obstetrics and gynecology.

Our graduate medical education programs offer residents and fellows intensive training in more than 20 specialties with an emphasis on one-on-one faculty mentoring, a focus on the development of progressive clinical and teaching skills, and ample opportunities to conduct research.

Throughout our school, we integrate basic, translational, and clinical research with population health and health systems science to create a scientifically rigorous learning environment that is also diverse, inclusive, comprehensive, and compassionate.

We pair these innovations with a structured career and academic advising program that involves academic coaching, specialty advising, and monthly learning community sessions to offer a truly personal approach to medical education.
