Information for Distance Education Students

The following is the NYMC student complaint process for online courses: Every student deserves a positive educational experience. Sometimes a student’s experience may not be what they anticipate, and the student may have a concern or a complaint. SARA consumer protection provisions require the institution’s home state, through its SARA State Portal Entity, to investigate and resolve allegations of dishonest or fraudulent activity by the state’s SARA-participating institutions, including the provision of false or misleading information. A student has the right to lodge a complaint or grievance. The institution should ensure that all concerns and complaints of students are addressed fairly and are resolved promptly. Student complaints relating to consumer protection laws offered under the terms and conditions of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), must first be filed with the institution to seek resolution. The student should begin the complaint process with the institution and if a resolution is not found, the student would contact the institution’s home state SARA Portal Entity. NC-SARA maintains a directory of SARA State Portal Entities. At NYMC, please email Ben Johnson to express your concern. Should your issue not be resolved to your satisfaction, you can visit the New York State Education Department for further information and the NC-SARA for complaint procedures.

School and program-specific areas

SOM Student Outcome Data

School of Medicine (SOM) students graduate with the knowledge and skills needed to excel in their residency training and eventually in their careers. Medicine is a very broad field; while some students know from the start what specialty they would like to pursue, many decide only after experiencing several different areas during their first two or three years in medical school (and many of those who knew from the start ultimately change their minds once they are introduced to other options.)

NYMC helps students find the path that best complements their skills and interests. For some, generalist disciplines are the best choice: general internal medicine, family medicine, general pediatrics, and medicine-pediatrics. Other options include surgery, radiology, orthopedics, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry, and neurology.

Learn more about the career paths available to SOM graduates by visiting our SOM alumni profiles page.
