Direct Progression to Residency

We provide students the opportunity to streamline their path from medical school to residency through a direct progression to one of the four Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)–accredited primary residency programs at NYU Long Island School of Medicine:

As part of NYU Long Island School of Medicine’s application process, applicants indicate their residency choice on our secondary application. In conjunction with their acceptance to the MD program, applicants are notified that the residency program they selected intends to rank them in a position to match at NYU Long Island School of Medicine should they in turn choose to rank that program. Contingent on students’ satisfactory academic progress and meeting professional standards, residency placements are finalized during the third year of medical school through students’ participation in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) Main Residency Match®.
