School of Medicine (SOM) students graduate with the knowledge and skills needed to excel in their residency training and eventually in their careers. Medicine is a very broad field; while some students know from the start what specialty they would like to pursue, many decide only after experiencing several different areas during their first two or three years in medical school (and many of those who knew from the start ultimately change their minds once they are introduced to other options.)
NYMC helps students find the path that best complements their skills and interests. For some, generalist disciplines are the best choice: general internal medicine, family medicine, general pediatrics, and medicine-pediatrics. Other options include surgery, radiology, orthopedics, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry, and neurology.
