Preliminary Medicine

The preliminary program at NYHQ recruits medical students from the best programs around the country. They come to enjoy an excellent clinical education in a community hospital setting that is just a short distance from the world’s finest restaurants, theaters, museums and sporting arenas.

Our medical center is large enough to ensure that residents treat virtually every type of medical condition, yet small enough to foster the best training and clinical guidance. The pathology we see in New York is extraordinarily diverse and a constant stimulus for learning. An innovative curriculum and state-of-the-art clinical resources assist you in generating an excellent foundation in general medicine.

  • A large, dynamic and collegial teaching faculty that prides itself on its availability and daily involvement with the residents. At this program you will find not only teachers, but mentors and friends
  • Exposure to an unparalleled variety of medical illnesses, with no predominance of any single diagnosis. You will become expert at treating all kinds of patients and all kinds of diseases
  • State-of-the-art clinical resources, including MRI-angiography, invasive radiology, cardiac catheterization and cardiovascular surgery
