Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences and School of Medicine Forge New Agreement
The GSBMS and SOM have announced a new agreement.
The Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences (GSBMS) and the School of Medicine (SOM) have announced a new agreement that will guarantee an admissions interview for students in several Master’s programs who seek admissions to the SOM, if they meet certain performance benchmarks including MCAT scores and academic performance.
The agreement covers existing and future students in the Accelerated Master’s Program, two-year discipline-based Master’s programs within each of the basic sciences departments and the two-year interdisciplinary Basic Medical Sciences Master’s Program.
“We are proud of the rigor of our Basic Medical Science Master’s programs, which provide an excellent preparation for many graduate and professional programs. We strongly believe that our students and graduates who achieved the benchmark academic criteria are outstanding candidates for our medical school program,” said Marina K. Holz, Ph.D., dean of the Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences.
“We are excited to offer this opportunity to qualified NYMC Master’s students. Many of our graduate students interact with current medical students and appreciate the collaboration and collegiality that is a hallmark of the NYMC community,” said Karen M. Murray, M.D. '99, associate dean of admissions for the School of Medicine and associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology.
