Welcome to the NYU School of Medicine’s Honors Program. With over 50 centers, 30 academic departments, and 550,500 square feet of research laboratories, our research community remains on the cutting edge of scientific discovery and innovation. The Honors Program serves as an exciting intellectual challenge, provides an in-depth research experience that will enable medical students to compete more successfully for residencies, and can be a stepping-stone towards a career in academic medicine.
My honors program work culminated with the defense of my honors thesis and the publication of several peer-reviewed articles. I am certain that the in-depth knowledge of cardiac pathophysiological processes learned in the lab translated readily to clinical insight and will make me a better physician." -- Joshua Lader, Class '09
