The Associated Medical Schools of New York (AMSNY) is proud to announce that New York State has increased funding for our Diversity in Medicine and Scholarship Programs so we may continue expanding the pipeline of medical students from underrepresented backgrounds.
AMSNY’s Diversity in Medicine Programs include four post-baccalaureate programs (at Jacobs School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences at University at Buffalo, New York Medical College, SUNY Upstate Medical University, and the Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University,) as well as programs at City College of New York and CUNY School of Medicine. The programs to date have helped hundreds of students matriculate into medical school.
The AMSNY Diversity in Medicine Scholarship will also be expanded thanks to increased state funding and continued support from the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation. During the 2022-2023 Academic Year 30 medical students from underrepresented backgrounds will be awarded tuition scholarships to offset the financial barriers to a medical school education.
AMSNY thanks Governor Kathy Hochul, as well as the NY State Assembly and State Senate for their commitment to improving diversity in medicine and addressing health care disparities.
