The CUNY School of Medicine has two distinguished programs, both focusing on serving in medically underserved communities.  Our BS/MD degree program admits students straight from high school into our accelerated undergraduate biomedical program with a seamless transition into the medical school curriculum removing the stresses of traditional medical school admissions. We are able to do this without compromising academic quality or clinical experiences. Read more

Congratulations to the MD Class of 2020! 

We now celebrate the fruition of a dream to graduate our first MD class from the CUNY School of Medicine. Almost 47 years ago, The Sophie Davis Center of Biomedical Education enrolled its first class into a baccalaureate program that included the first two years of the medical school curriculum. Students then transferred to cooperating medical schools to complete their MD degree. Please read more about the CUNY School of Medicine Graduation acknowledgment.
