Selecting a medical school is a very important decision and it’s essential for applicants to be fully informed before making a choice. At NYMC, the Student-2-Student Network coordinates three programs—described below—that help accepted candidates learn everything they need to know about life and medical education at NYMC, from a valuable peer perspective. Our goal is to share our enthusiasm and insights with prospective students and, if it’s the right fit, encourage them to choose NYMC.
The Student-2-Student Network always needs great volunteers for the our programs. If you are interested in joining the Student-2-Student Network, please complete this form now. It will only take a minute.
Student Ambassador Committee: Student Ambassadors communicate via email and social media with accepted students to answer their questions and provide meaningful information. The Ambassador Committee aims to create a comfortable forum for prospective students so they can ask any questions they have. We also try to help prospective students understand what it’s like to attend NYMC and let them know all that our school has to offer, both academically and personally.
Second Look: Debuting in spring 2016, NYMC will offer a Second Look day in April for accepted students. The event—intended to give an in-depth view of the school of medicine—will include a curriculum presentation; a tour of the Clinical Skills Center; a review of NYMC’s Match List; a student panel discussion; a buffet dinner and other highlights. The Student-2-Student Network will provide student panelists for the event, as well as host any students who are traveling from afar and require an overnight stay on campus.
Med Student for a Day: This one-on-one program allows accepted candidates to spend a day on campus with a current medical student, attend classes, participate in small group discussions and learn more about the daily life of a medical student. Student-2-Student Network volunteers are needed to host prospects for the day. [Some candidates may also need stay overnight—on the evening prior to classes—if traveling from afar].
