“We’re not going to be making any specific announcements [about the new NYU medical school on the Long Island campus] until after state and academic-accreditation approvals are complete.” That was the quote from a spokeswoman back in November.
Well, the Liaison Committee on Medical Education granted preliminary accreditation to the medical school. Accordingly, NYU has made it official. The new, three-year NYU Long Island School of Medicine will also be tuition free. This three-year medical school is for primary care physicians. Furthermore, the vast majority of graduates will complete their residencies at the NYU Winthrop Hospital. Most doctors settle where they completed their residencies. Consequently, this program is specifically designed for primary care physicians to serve the Long Island area.
