The goal of the PMP is to strengthen the academic, professional and social skills of new students as they enter New York Medical College. PMP curricula and competencies will be delivered in modules which will focus on gross anatomy, cell biology/histology, biochemistry and physiology. In addition, learning styles, test-taking skills, and wellness will also be covered.

During this two week period, the program will cover learning styles, test taking skills, wellness, financial management, time management, accommodations, and our rich array of career advising resources. The program also helps familiarize students with campus resources and provides an excellent opportunity to get acclimated and form relationships with future classmates.

We would like some of the staff members to be available on July 10th 2022, which is when many of the participants in the pre-matriculation program will be moving into their on-campus housing.

The ideal candidate will feel comfortable teaching the material that was taught in the first year of medical school. Those who feel comfortable giving lectures may have the opportunity to lecture (however this is not a requirement). Most staff will be leading small group sessions (10-12 incoming first-year medical students).
