School Overview

School Info

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.

Curriculum

The implementation of an innovative new curriculum for the medical degree program at the NYU School of Medicine provides an education that integrates formal "classroom" knowledge with clinical experience and thereby prepares students for all career options in medicine. Curriculum for the 21st Century, or C21, provides students with a patient-centered and disease-focused medical education. The curriculum has also been structured to provide students with flexibility in their educational experience. Students work autonomously and as part of a team as they develop the communication and cultural competency skills they will need to practice medicine in the 21st Century. C21 is a competency-based curriculum. As such, Foundational Knowledge, Integrated Clinical Skills, Professional Development and Scholarship and Research are built upon throughout our curriculum.

Facilities

Schwartz Lecture Hall contains 37,000 square feet of space, including two auditoriums, each with a capacity of about 300, and two lecture rooms, each accommodating 60. In addition, there are a large auditorium and two lecture rooms located in Alumni Hall. All facilities are equipped with modern audio-visual systems. The Medical Science Building, Berg Institute, Smilow Resarch Center, and Imaging Laboratory house the research areas as well as the library and administrative offices. The Geraldine H. Coles Medical Science Laboratories is a student laboratory building adjacent to the Medical Science Building. Designed with a multipurpose approach to laboratory space, the plan of the laboratories also took into account changes in emphasis in basic science teaching. These involve a perceptible shift away from detailed laboratory study, a greater emphasis on integrative mechanisms in the teaching of the first two years, and a necessity to focus on a more individualized interchange between faculty and students. Facilities utilized in patient care, teaching, and research programs affiliated with the School are wide-ranging, placing the School?s faculty in charge of one of the most extensive patient care operations in the nation. Four major hospitals, Bellevue, Tisch, Hospital for Joint Diseases Orthopedics Institute, and the Department of Veterans Affairs New York Harbor Health Care System, form a unique biomedical corridor along First Avenue in Manhattan. These are joined on campus by two other important healthcare facilities, the Rusk Institute and the Schwartz Health Care Center. Affiliated hospitals in the greater metropolitan area include: North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System; Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital; Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center; Gouverneur Diagnostic and Treatment Center; Jamaica Hospital; and Chinatown Health Clinic. This vast array of clinical facilities offers an extraordinary breadth of experiences for our students.

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.
