NYU Long Island School of Medicine Mission & Values
NYU Long Island School of Medicine improves the health of the communities we serve by advancing medical education, scientific discovery, and the delivery of comprehensive, equitable, and collaborative healthcare.
Our mission is to develop preeminent physician leaders and a diverse workforce through scholarship and innovative medical education design, anchored in the principles of primary care and health systems science.
Founded in 2019, NYU Long Island School of Medicine fulfills the pressing need to train the next generation of medical leaders in the fields of primary care medicine and health systems science. Our accelerated three-year MD program is focused exclusively on primary care, and the costs are offset by our Tuition-Free Scholarships and other financial aid. MD students have the opportunity to pursue a direct link to residency training programs in internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, and general surgery at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island through the National Resident Matching Program.
Our Core Values
NYU Long Island School of Medicine’s core values—performance, respect, integrity, diversity, and excellence—align with NYU Langone Health’s trifold mission to serve, teach, and discover. We believe our five core values enable us to build on a tradition of service, foster a culture of collaboration and teamwork, and better meet the needs of those we serve.
Every member of our community contributes to our success and mission by educating future physicians and healthcare providers, performing innovative research, and providing quality patient care.
We achieve our performance goals through accountability, responsibility, and dedication to collaborative learning and professional growth, and uphold our commitment to fostering a respectful community through open and professional communication, active listening, resource sharing, and the recognition of the contributions of our team members.
We sustain integrity by setting high standards for ethics, trust, and honesty. Our diverse and inclusive environment champions cultural competence and embraces a wide breadth of resources, skills, ideas, and knowledge to create opportunities for those traditionally underrepresented in medicine.
Our devotion to excellence in primary care and health systems science is achieved by promoting quality, innovation, and safety to achieve world-class patient care, education, and research.

We develop and support innovative population health and health services research by expanding and bolstering new opportunities for students, residents, and faculty to set the strategic priorities that will allow us to become a top-ranked school of medicine. We remain dedicated to educating future primary care physicians and cultivating advances in population health and health systems science research.
