NYU Long Island Medical School announced the creation of a new three year medical school, on February 19, 2019. The medical school, which will be located on the campus of NYU Winthrop Hospital in Mineola, will focus on training primary care physicians. The program will be tuition free to all students, without regard for merit or need.
The first class of students will begin their training in July 2019. The program is currently accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education and is the process of final approval by the New York State Department of Education.
The Winthrop Mineola school will be NYU's second medical school program and will offer students conditional acceptance to an NYU Winthrop residency through the National Resident Matching Program. The initial class will consist of 24 students and grow in the future to eventually accommodate 40 students in each of the three classes of the program
