The New York College of Osteopathic Medicine at New York Institute of Technology has recently launched a new Family Medicine Program. This accelerated program is designed for students pursuing a career in family medicine, and hopes to aid the physician shortage in underserved areas.
Beginning next June, NYCOM will enroll up to 15 second-year students in the pilot program, which compresses the final three years of medical school into two and matches graduates into NYCOM-affiliated family medicine residencies. Enrollees will serve their third-year rotations at their residency sites, which fan across underserved urban, rural and suburban New York.
As a result, NYCOM will be one of only two osteopathic medical schools that offer an accelerated curriculum option.
