School Overview

School Info

It is the goal of a Sackler education to provide graduates with an exceptional academic foundation in the science of human disease and with the clinical skills to translate this knowledge into accurate diagnoses and treatment. Equally as important, the program at Sackler strives to cultivate and nurture in its graduates the qualities that foster an empathic, ethical doctor-patient relationship. Graduating physicians are encouraged to foster their own career-long commitment to professional self-assessment and continuing education in order to keep abreast of the rapid changes in medicine.

Curriculum

Approximately 300 students are enrolled in the New York State/American Program, which is specifically for medical students from the United States. Created in 1976, this unique program is taught entirely in English. Its curriculum and teaching methods are modeled after those of U.S. medical schools. Classes are small. Classroom, laboratory and clinical sessions are supplemented by self-study and by tutoring and seminars in small groups. The four-year course of study is spent at the Tel Aviv University-Sackler School of Medicine and its affiliated hospital departments.

Facilities

Teaching institutions whose departments are affiliated with Sackler include seven major medical centers, six psychiatric hospitals, 20 research institutes and a large rehabilitation center.

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.
