CUNY School of Medicine

CUNY School of Medicine

Serving the underserved.

There is a continuing shortage of primary care physicians in this country, creating an urgent need for more family practitioners, general internists, pediatricians and obstetrician/gynecologists in many communities.  The shortage of African-American, Hispanic, and others underrepresented medical professionals in inner city areas is particularly acute.

Over forty years ago, City College decided to make a difference by developing the most unique physician training programs in the nation – The CUNY School of Medicine.  Since its founding in 1973, The CUNY School of Medicine has recruited more underrepresented populations into medicine, increased medical services in underserved areas, and increased the availability of primary care physicians. 

Our innovative program fast tracks a Bachelor of Science degree and an M.D. degree in seven years. Graduates of our 28-month P.A. Program leads to a M.S. degree and eligibility to take the national certification examination.

City Island Abuzz With Alumni from the Class of 1994

A mini reunion from the Sophie Davis Class of 1994 met on City Island on Sunday, May 19. Seventeen classmates caught up on life after their Sophie Davis years and medical school. The topic of conversation included the importance of staying connected and giving back. CSOM is planning a reunion on November 17, 2019, to give alumni another chance to catch up with more of their classmates. Details are forthcoming. 

To help us keep alumni connected, all alumni are asked to send their contact information to Margaret Ambrosino at  A special thanks to Dr. Qili Li for sending us pictures and highlights from the event.
