About Us

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.

The percentage of NYU graduates who are members of medical school faculties is among the highest in the nation. For most of them, an invaluable part of that training was their service at Bellevue Hospital, one of the nation’s finest municipal hospitals, where NYU physicians have provided clinical and emergency care to
New York City’s poor and immigrant populations for more than a century.

As part of a “biomedical corridor” extending from 23rd to 34th Streets along Manhattan’s East River Drive, our institution is guided by the promise of “translational medicine,” in which scientific discoveries are urgently translated into innovative treatments for patients. To create an environment worthy of rapid medical advances, we are constructing new research and clinical facilities. These state-of-the-art facilities will serve as the home for our physician-scientists who are the intellectual foundation of the School. In addition, we are recruiting a new generation of scholars and teachers who have established national and international reputations. And we are admitting some of the nation’s best and brightest students, many of whom will become tomorrow’s leaders in the medical profession.

Your focus and ours is whether NYU is the right place to pursue your medical education. We hope that this website captures the spirit of the educational enterprise at NYU, as well as the experience of studying medicine in the heart of New York City.
