Directed Pathway to Residency
We offer students the opportunity to streamline their path from medical school to residency through the offer of a directed pathway to one of the four Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)–accredited primary residency programs sponsored by NYU Long Island School of Medicine at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island. These include the following residency programs:
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 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.
