Office of Undergraduate Medical Education
New York Medical College continues to be a leader in providing opportunities for students to learn in primary care settings and in guiding students in considering careers in the generalist disciplines: general internal medicine, family medicine, general pediatrics, and medicine-pediatrics. The College was one of the first to provide first- and second-year experiences in community-based primary care settings where students work one-on-one with generalist preceptors to learn the core skills of clinical medicine, including communication skills, history-taking and physical diagnosis.
The educational objectives and key competencies of the College reflect the central importance of attaining generalist competencies that are the foundational clinical knowledge and skills required of all students regardless of their ultimate career choice.
