Hey everyone,

I’m currently a pre-med looking into med-schools in the northeast (I live in NYC), NYU being a top choice. My plan is to specialize, but I’m not sure if it’s a good idea to attend NYU since their main goal in removing student tuition is to increase the amount of doctors in primary care. Is Grossman a good school for people who want to specialize?

Thanks

uhh... Im pretty sure the majority of students attending NYU grossman are not intending on going into primary care.

to address the physician shortage issue, NYU has their Long Island program which I believe is a fast track path toward primary care.

as mentioned in the post above, the school you attend wont stop you from matching into your specialty of choice (granted that your application is solid)

NYU is actually one of the best places you can go if you want to be a specialist. It's a top school with great name recognition these days and it even has the 3-year programs for its own highly regarded subspecialty residencies.

The best medical school to attend is one you can get into. If a I am not mistaken, NYU has the highest matriculant GPA 3.93 and the highest MCAT 522 averages across the country. Get into med school first then worry about specializing
