Welcome from Our Founding Dean
Dr. Steven Shelov

Steven Shelov, MD, MS

Dean and Chief Academic Officer

Welcome to NYU Long Island School of Medicine—a partnership between New York University and NYU Langone Health. In our program, we educate exemplary physicians and academic leaders in primary care, preparing our students to deliver outstanding patient care and become authorities in local and national health systems.

Our innovative three-year curriculum combines medical education, research, and quality patient care, and reduces the traditional medical school curriculum by one full year. We are proud to offer full-tuition scholarships for three years to all matriculated students who maintain satisfactory academic progress and professionalism standards, regardless of merit or financial need. By covering the majority of the cost of attendance, we hope to make it more financially feasible for you to choose careers in the important fields of primary care, internal medicine, pediatrics, and obstetrics and gynecology.

We integrate basic, translational, and clinical research with population health and health systems science to create a scientifically rigorous learning environment that is also diverse, inclusive, comprehensive, and compassionate.

We pair these innovations with a structured career and academic advising program that involves academic coaching, specialty advising, and monthly learning community sessions to offer a truly personal approach to medical education. It is my pleasure and honor to welcome you.
