Welcome new and returning students

Thank you for choosing CUNY School of Medicine for your medical education. We are here to support you every step of the way on your journey.

The Sophie Davis Biomedical Education Program at the CUNY School of Medicine is designed to attract students who have an outstanding academic performance in high school with a strong record in the sciences, mathematics, written and verbal communication skills and community service. Academically qualified students who demonstrate the maturity, integrity, compassion, and motivation needed to become dedicated and highly skilled professionals are those most likely to succeed in the program. The School’s holistic admission review is based on the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) standard of assessing students based on each individual’s experiences, attributes, and metrics with the goal of matriculating a diverse student body. A key factor considered in the admissions process is the applicant’s potential and interest in pursuing a career as a primary care doctor in a physician shortage area.

Physician Assistant Program

Take a tour of our program and learn about our mission.

The Physician Assistant Program is committed to increasing the number of physician assistants of African-American, Latino, and other ethnic backgrounds, whose communities have historically been under-served. 

It also encourages representation for individuals and families living in the communities in which they practice. As such, its mission and goals are consistent with those of the Sophie Davis Biomedical Education Program/CUNY School of Medicine.

The shortage of African-American and Hispanic/Latinx primary care physicians, as well as primary care physicians in inner city communities, is particularly acute.
