New Medical Student Health Requirements
All incoming medical students at NYU Long Island School of Medicine must meet mandatory health entrance requirements prior to matriculation. We ask that you begin this process as soon as possible to allow ample time to gather health information, complete necessary screening, and receive needed immunizations.
Please schedule an appointment with a healthcare provider to have the mandatory health packet completed and reviewed to confirm that all preadmission health requirements are met. The healthcare provider cannot be a family member. The following health information must be provided to Student Health Service:
Student Health Services will also send an email notification to create an NYU Langone MyChart account, which you need to activate to complete mandatory medical history forms and an identity questionnaire.
We strongly advise that medical students receive a meningococcal conjugate vaccine (at least one dose of Menveo or Menactra after the age of 16 and within the previous 5 years). To waive this requirement students can submit a meningococcal vaccine refusal form.
