BS Program Introduction

The CUNY School of Medicine/Sophie Davis Biomedical Education Program provides an integrated curriculum in medical studies. Students must satisfy not only the academic requirements of the CUNY School of Medicine but also the additional requirements of the City College of New York. These requirements are designed to ensure that students receive the broad-based education that will prepare them to meet the constantly changing demands of the medical profession in accordance with the highest ethical and professional standards and the goals of the Medical School.

During the Program’s first three years, students fulfill all requirements for the BS degree in Biomedical Sciences. After receiving the BS degree and with approval by the Student Academic Progress Committee, students will be eligible for admission to the MD program. Upon successful completion of the MD program and with approval by the SAPC, students will be granted the MD degree. The City College of New York confers both degrees.
