Medical Honors Pathway

The Medical Honors Pathway provides a direct route to medical education for highly qualified students out of high school. It leads to a baccalaureate degree from NYSCAS and an M.D. medical degree from New York Medical College, one of the country’s largest and oldest medical schools.

Once accepted to NYSCAS and the Medical Honors Pathway, you will be conditionally admitted to New York Medical College School of Medicine and have the opportunity to complete a medical degree in eight years (or seven years if you’ve spent a year in Israel), provided you meet the curriculum, activities and medical school matriculation requirements while enrolled at NYSCAS. Final admission to NYMC School of Medicine is based upon the decision of the NYMC School of Medicine Committee on Admissions and requires successful completion of all the requirements of the pathway.

You’ll be mentored throughout your education by NYSCAS and New York Medical College faculty and staff. Additionally, you’ll be offered counseling, assistance with MCAT preparation and clinical or research opportunities at New York Medical College during your undergraduate years.
