NYCOM’s Accelerated Family Medicine Program

On December 4, 2011, in Featured, by NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine SGA

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.
