NYCPM provides unrivaled excellence in podiatric medical education and clinical experience.
The Premier Podiatric Medical School
As the premier podiatric medical school, The New York College of Podiatric Medicine has graduated more than 25% of all active podiatrists in the nation. The school is located in New York City where many of the most prestigious health care institutions in the world are found. NYCPM has established affiliations with many of these, including Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons and the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation.
Students participate in residency and other post-graduate programs at these and other renowned health care institutions in the area.
Benefits of NYCPM
As a student at NYCPM, you will receive comprehensive academic training and directly-supervised clinical experiences second to none. Clinical teaching takes place at our affiliated Foot Center of New York (FCNY) and at our affiliated academic teaching hospitals. Our students have an unparalleled opportunity to experience a variety of podiatric medical pathologies and cases that they would likely not encounter even in years of private practice.
The school's Pre-clinical Sciences division challenges students with a curriculum similar to those at other medical schools. Students study subjects such as Genetics, Molecular Biology, Neurology, Immmunology, Pharmacology and whole-body Anatomy, including cadaver dissection.
NYCPM students receive supervised clinical instruction after the first two years of pre-clinical sciences and begin clinical rotations during the third year. The fourth year is spent in clerkships in Podiatric Surgery, General Surgery, Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Pediatrics and General Radiology at our affiliated hospitals around the country. Graduates enter Graduate Training programs of one to three years, with a minimum of two years required.
