Well I would start there for now — not sure exactly the timing on dental school works but for Med school it’s still a bit early to be 100% sure. If there’s no group yet there will probably be one soon.Yep! I was only able to find the one for accepted students, but not one for students who have decided to attend.
This is a hard metric to use because it really reflects personal prep and many other factors. I wouldn’t recommend making a school choice based on Step 1 average. You have much more control over your score than you think.Does anyone know what the average Step 1 scores of NYMC are? I dont know how big of a factor that is for choosing a school but I’m between here and MSU CHM and thought it would be helpful
it's described well on the school website. Clinical skills class is very good in my opinion called FCM. Research is what you make of it, also mentioned on site i assume.
There are a few components to clinical training in the preclinical years:
If you're very curious, some forums track scores - but it's not exactly an official collection of step averages so take the numbers with a grain of salt.Does anyone know what the average Step 1 scores of NYMC are?

Thank you so much for the information. You rock!There are a few components to clinical training in the preclinical years:
1. Preceptorship: you spend 8 half days over the course of the first year working with an attending/preceptor, interviewing patients with residents, etc. Pretty standard preceptorship stuff. This continues in the second year as well.
2. Standardized patients: we learn first in small groups / practicing with each other how to conduct a patient history/physical exam, and then practice these skills with standardized patients (paid actors). The first year is just mastering basic skills, the second year includes more difficult patients, and actually gets into diff. diagnosis etc.
3. Patient panels: there are FCM (foundations of clinical medicine) lectures and patient encounters, in which they bring patients into the school and you can ask them questions as a class (ie. you could ask a patient with Autism Spectrum Disorder about their experience in healthcare, etc).
For research, I would check out the following site:
NYMC has a yearly research forum for student poster and platform presentations, and offers stipends for summer research with NYMC faculty (and a few stipends for research at other institutions.) There is also a research concentration which you could choose to participate in, which includes attending student research presentations (held twice a month), an online research course, and presenting your research in some way during your first three years of school.
Hope that helps!
Actually if you just moved to the state and need medicaid, you can apply as soon as you have a permanent address (I enroll homeless people sometimes and we tell them their friend's place or their shelter is their permanent address until they get situated and housed).It's just 1 year to be a NYS resident
