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.
