New York's 16 medical schools have enrolled 120 more students this fall than last year, including the first classes in a pair of three-year programs that allow students to graduate faster and with less debt. More than half of the 2,424 new medical students are state residents, nearly half are women and 3 percent are international students, according to Associated Medical Schools of New York.
