Academic Programs

Medical Degree (MD) Program

  • NYU School of Medicine is one of the nation’s preeminent academic institutions. For more than 150 years, we have trained thousands of physician-scientists who have helped to shape the course of medical history and enrich the lives of countless people. Through medical education, scientific research, and patient care, we continue to demonstrate our deep, abiding commitment to improving the human condition.

Dual MD/Masters Degree Programs

  • NYU School of Medicine encourages intellectual aspiration in fields that intersect with medicine and supports students who choose to pursue additional training in their areas of particular interest. To that end, the school currently offers four Master's Degree programs (MD/MPH, MD/MPA, MD/MA in Bioethics, and an MD/MS in Clinical Investigation). These programs offer medical students the opportunity to obtain a graduate degree along with their M.D. degree, and offer several potential advantages over pursuing the two degrees separately.

MD/PhD Combined Degree

  • The NYU Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) offers a rigorous dual MD/PhD training track that merges the fundamentals of scientific inquiry with the insights and experience of clinicians. There are approximately 10 students in each year of the program (average time to complete the program is 8 years). The usual course of study includes the first two years of medical school integrated with summer research rotations, followed by approximately four years of thesis studies, culminating with a PhD degree. After concluding with approximately 18 months of clinical clerkships and electives in the hospitals associated with NYU Langone Medical Center, Tisch Hospital, Bellevue Hospital, NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases, and the VA Medical Center, the MD degree is awarded and fellows enter top-tier residency programs around the country. All MSTP students receive an annual stipend to defray living expenses.

Graduate Degree (Ph.D)

  • The Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences is a division of the NYU Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. It offers interdisciplinary training programs in the basic medical sciences, leading to the PhD degree. In addition, Sackler is responsible for all of the student activities for this group of individuals. The Postdoctoral Program works to improve the quality of life and the educational experience for postdoctoral fellows at the SoM and it is administered through this office.

Residency and Fellowship Programs

  • NYU School of Medicine offers residency and fellowship training in a broad range of clinical specialties. If you have general questions, or do not find the department you require, contact the House Staff office, 212-263-5506. Please visit the Graduate Medical Education website for information for current residents and fellows.

Continuing Medical Education

  • The CME office executes live courses for physicians, produces enduring materials, and accredits grand rounds and other regularly scheduled conferences for continuing medical education credit. The office is responsible for maintaining NYU’s accreditation from the American Council on Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
