MD Admissions

We take a holistic approach to our admissions process and welcome candidates with diverse backgrounds and life experiences.

Our mission is to develop preeminent physician leaders and a diverse workforce through scholarship and innovative medical education design anchored by the principles of primary care and health systems science. We seek to enroll students of diverse backgrounds, life experiences, and perspectives who demonstrate a commitment to future practice in primary care disciplines such as internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology or general surgery. Candidates interested in family medicine are also encouraged to apply. Meet some of our current students.

Three-Year Accelerated Curriculum

Our innovative, rigorous three-year accelerated MD curriculum is geared toward exceptionally qualified students who excel in a team-oriented learning environment that promotes diversity as a driver of excellence, self-directed active learning, engaged scholarship, and innovative thinking.

Directed Pathway to Residency

To streamline entry into the primary care disciplines, upon acceptance to medical school candidates are also offered a directed pathway into selected primary care residency programs at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island in the fields of internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology or general surgery.

As part of NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine’s secondary application, applicants specify which of these four residency tracks they wish to be considered. Careful consideration is given to applicants’ pre-medical foundational experiences and the insights they have gained which have informed their residency track choice. Upon acceptance, candidates are notified that they will be ranked to match into their specified residency program through participation in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) during their final year of medical school, contingent on satisfactory academic progress. and on meeting professional standards while in medical school. This positions students to match at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island should they choose to rank this program.

Note: Candidates interested in family medicine may apply to NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine via the internal medicine track and are successfully positioned to match outside the directed pathway to residency option to top-tier family medicine residency programs across the country.

Full-Tuition and Debt-Free Scholarships

All enrolled students are awarded three-year Full-Tuition Scholarships regardless of need or merit so long as they continue to make satisfactory academic progress and professional standards during medical school. Additional Debt-Free Scholarships are offered to qualified students who have demonstrated financial need to help pay for the costs of attendance that exceed tuition.

Holistic Admissions Approach

Our holistic admissions approach enables us to broaden the lens through which we learn about our applicants and to better assess how their premedical experiences, personal attributes, and academic metrics align with our primary care mission and innovative three-year accelerated educational program. We are also interested in learning more about the life journeys of our applicants, any challenges they may have faced along their path, and how they hope to contribute to the medical profession and our community of engaged learners.

We encourage applications from people who are from groups underrepresented in medicine, first-generation college students, those from disadvantaged backgrounds or who may have taken a non-traditional path toward medicine as well as those who have ties to the communities served by the medical school.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral to our mission of training future physicians who are equipped with the knowledge and skills to transform how healthcare is delivered, advance social and health equity, and lessen healthcare disparities. In service of this goal, NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine prioritizes a culture of inclusivity and acceptance and an appreciation for the value of individuals from all backgrounds, gender identities, and sexual orientations. Our community of healers, educators, scientists, and learners are steadfast advocates for tolerance, justice, and equality.
