NYU School of Medicine announced today that it will begin offering a new accelerated three-year Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree, approved earlier this month by the New York State Education Department. NYU School of Medicine is the first nationally ranked academic medical center in the United States to offer such a program that allows graduates to pursue a career in either primary care or the medical specialty of their choice.
The new learner-centered program revolutionizes medical education by reducing the length of the traditional MD degree, allowing exceptional medical students to begin their careers earlier in a variety of fields and with less debt. Another integral feature of the new program is that all three-year degree candidates will also be offered acceptance into an NYU Langone Medical Center residency program of their choice at the time of admission, providing a continuum of training between undergraduate medical education and graduate residency training.
