NYU Grossman School of Medicine is a medical school of New York University (NYU) , a private research university in New York City. It was founded in 1841 and is one of two medical schools of the university, the other being the NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine. Both are part of NYU Langone Health.


NYU Grossman School of Medicine was founded in 1841 as the Medical College of New York University, with an inaugural class of 239 students. Among the college's six original faculty members were renowned surgeon Valentine Mott and John Revere, son of patriot Paul Revere. In 1898, the Medical College of New York University consolidated with Bellevue Hospital Medical College, forming the University and Bellevue Hospital Medical College of New York University.

In 1935, University and Bellevue Hospital Medical College was renamed New York University College of Medicine. In 1960, New York University College of Medicine was renamed New York University School of Medicine.

The faculty and alumni of NYU Grossman School of Medicine have contributed to the control of tuberculosis., diphtheria, yellow fever, and sexually transmitted infections, as well as the development of vaccines for measles, rubella, hepatitis B, polio, and cancer; advances in the treatment and prevention of stroke and heart disease; and the introduction of minimally invasive surgical techniques. In the early 1980s, clinicians and researchers from NYU Grossman School of Medicine working at NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue were among the first to identify an alarming increase in Kaposi's sarcoma, opportunistic infections, and immune system failure among young gay men, and alert health authorities to an imminent health catastrophe, soon to be known as HIV/AIDS.

NYU Grossman School of Medicine counts among its faculty and alumni four Nobel laureates:

In 2007, Robert I. Grossman, an internationally recognized distinguished neuroradiologist who had served as chair of NYU Langone Health’s Department of Radiology since 2001, was appointed the 15th Dean of NYU School of Medicine and CEO of NYU Medical Center, as they were then named.

In 2010, the school introduced the Curriculum for the 21st Century, or C21,a new curriculum that affords students earlier and more frequent interaction with patients and new learning pathways with more opportunities for specialized training in areas best suited to their interests.

In 2013, the school established an accelerated three-year M.D. pathway for select medical students to ease the financial burden of medical school and launch medical careers one year earlier than traditional students. The school became the first nationally ranked medical school in the U.S. to enable medical students to graduate in three years, providing a directed pathway into any one of twenty residency programs and accelerated entry into a variety of medical specialties.

In 2018, the school implemented full-tuition scholarships for all current and future students in its M.D. degree program, making NYU Grossman School of Medicine the first top-ranked medical school in the nation to provide full-tuition scholarships to all of its students.

In 2019 NYU Langone Health partnered with NYU to form NYU Long Island School of Medicine, a new, three-year medical school located at NYU Langone Hospital – Long Island.

In 2019, the school was renamed NYU Grossman School of Medicine in honor of the educational achievements of Dean Robert I. Grossman.


NYU Grossman School of Medicine has 29 academic departments in the clinical and basic sciences.

In 2010, NYU Grossman School of Medicine implemented a curriculum consisting of 18 months of basic science and two and a half years of clinical training. Students take the USMLE Step 1 exam after the clerkship year (with the exception of MD/PhD students, who take it before starting their PhD work). The curriculum also includes NYU3T (a joint program with the New York University College of Nursing) and PLACE (Patient-Based Longitudinal Ambulatory Care Experience).

NYU Grossman School of Medicine also offers 5-year joint degree programs, some of which can be optionally completed in 4 years:

For scientists and physician–scientists, the School of Medicine offers PhD, MD/PhD, and postdoctoral programs at Vilcek Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences at NYU Langone Health.
