The CUNY School of Medicine (CSOM) at The City College of New York (CCNY), is the only
medical school in the City University of New York system. Our innovative curriculum allows
students to complete both their undergraduate Bachelor of Science (BS) and Doctor of Medicine
(MD) degrees in seven years. CSOM graduated its first MD class in 2020. In addition,
CSOM offers a two-year Physician Assistant (PA) program to prepare health professionals
licensed to practice medicine with physician supervision. The mission of the CSOM is 1) to
provide access to medical and PA education to talented youth from social, ethnic and racial
backgrounds historically underrepresented in medicine and to develop health professionals
committed to practicing in under-served communities with a special emphasis on primary care
and 2) to perform innovative research in community health and biomedicine.
The Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Biomedical Sciences (MCBS) was formed through
the merger of several basic science departments and represents one of the four departments in
the school (Community Health and Social Medicine, Medical Education, and Clinical Medicine).
The department plays a critical role in our mission-driven BS/MD program and Physician
Assistant program through the teaching of the basic science curriculum and by conducting
extramurally funded research. The research agenda of the current members of the department
is centered on neuroscience, microbiology and immunology, cardiovascular disease, and

There is a continuing shortage of primary care physicians in this country, creating an urgent need for more family practitioners, general internists, pediatricians and obstetricians/gynecologists in many communities. The shortage of African-American, Hispanic, Native Americans and other underrepresented medical professionals in inner-city areas is particularly acute. Thus, recruiting and training a diverse workforce that represents the diversity of the patients being served in such communities is of utmost importance and ensures health equity across the continuum of care. Over forty years ago, CUNY and City College decided to make a difference by developing the most unique physician and physician assistant training programs in the nation – The Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education. Since its founding in 1973, The Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education, now known as the CUNY School of Medicine/Sophie Davis Biomedical Education Program continues its original mission to recruit underrepresented populations into medicine, increased medical services in underserved areas, and increased the availability of primary care physicians and physician assistants that reflect the divers...ity of our surrounding communities. This mission is currently served with an 85% enrollment rate of students from backgrounds that are Underrepresented in Medicine (URiM; e.g., African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native American), greatly exceeding the current U.S. medical school average of 43%. The CUNY School of Medicine encompasses an innovative accelerated BS/MD program that combines a Bachelor of Science degree and an M.D. degree in seven years and a 28-month Physician Assistant Program that leads to a Masters degree in P.A. Studies and eligibility to take the physician assistant national certification examination (PANCE).
