NYMC > Future Students > Why NYMC


Throughout the U.S. and especially in New York State, there is no shortage of reputable schools of medicine, public health and biomedical sciences. Why do so many talented and committed students choose to study at New York Medical College? While each of our students would likely offer their own answer to that question, there are at least four recurring reasons:

  • We Are Effective – Upon graduation, our students achieve nearly 100% certification and job placements, and the match rate for our medical students is consistently higher than the national average. Our combination of hands-on experience, exceptional academics and emphasis on compassionate care prepares our graduates for career success.
  • We Are Inclusive – NYMC has a proud history of offering opportunity to all: we accepted women as early as 1863 and graduated women of color beginning in 1870. Today, more than 20 percent of the student bodies of each of our schools are underrepresented minorities, and our commitment to diversity and inclusion remains as strong as ever.
  • We Are Compassionate – Medical care, services and research require more than just clinical competence. Successful providers and professionals must also be compassionate, caring and collaborative. Our humanistic approach instills in our students the combination of technical skills and personal qualities they need to be successful.
  • We Are Progressive – In 2011, we joined the Touro College and University System, one of the largest independent institutions of higher and professional education in the U.S. This move ushered in a new era of growth and opportunity for the College; for our students, staff and faculty; and, ultimately, for the communities we serve. 

With a dedicated faculty, state-of the art laboratories, an extensive network of affiliated hospitals and an innovative curriculum, NYMC is an exceptional choice for students who wish to make a difference.
