Advisement and mentorship are key components of the medical education program. The school offers a wide-range of programs led by both faculty and students to ensure students have all the information, guidance and support to successfully navigate their medical education and pursue their chosen professional path. This begins even before you matriculate to NYMC. The Student-2-Student Network
is a student-led outreach program that offers accepted candidates several ways to learn more about NYMC—from a peer perspective—as they contemplate matriculating to NYMC. Once a student at NYMC, the Virtual House System
provides longitudinal advisement over the course of the four years of medical school by designated house deans – all of whom are faculty and practicing physicians. Each virtual house is comprised of approximately 80 students, including students from each academic year which allows for peer mentorship between students at different stages of their medical education. Career planning
is also integrated into each year of medical school through a myriad of campus resources to ensure students are aware of every opportunity to prepare for and pursue their career path. The Office of University Academic Support Programs
is committed to foster a better learning environment for all students. Among the programs offered are: peer tutoring, workshops to address study techniques, a study partner match service, one-on-one academic support advice and assistance in making study plans, and standardized test preparation lectures and workshops.
