School Overview

School Info

As the premier podiatric medical school, The New York College of Podiatric Medicine has graduated more than 25% of all active podiatrists in the nation. The school is located in New York City where many of the most prestigious health care institutions in the world are found. NYCPM has established affiliations with many of these, including Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons and the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation.

Curriculum

The New York College of Podiatric Medicine offers a four-year program of study; the ultimate goal of which is to prepare the graduate to enter graduate podiatric medical training programs. A composite of traditional and problem-based learning serves as the fundamental structure of the curriculum. The podiatric medical curriculum is designed for students who have already received required prerequisite education in chemistry, physics and biology. The curriculum of the New York College of Podiatric Medicine parallels that of allopathic/osteopathic medicine in that it consists of two years of pre-clinical and two years of clinical sciences.

Facilities

Clinical teaching takes place at our affiliated Foot Clinics of New York (FCNY) and at our affiliated academic teaching hospitals. Our students have an unparalleled opportunity to experience a variety of podiatric medical pathologies and cases that they would likely not encounter even in years of private practice.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
