College of Medicine Admissions

New Yorkers expect excellence. And more New York City physicians are trained at Downstate than any other medical school.

The road to Downstate starts here. Every fall, we welcome a class of 200 medical students, out of a pool of approximately 5,500. Whether you apply through our regular admission channel, as an Early Decision candidate or through one of our dual-degree programs, we're excited to meet you.

The College of Medicine offers several degree paths: An M.D. degree; a combined M.D./Ph.D. degree, with the School of Graduate Studies; and a combined M.D./MPH degree, with the School of Public Health.
