Our newest program, FlexMed, is a first-in-nation approach to early medical school acceptance for half of every incoming class. It is an expansion of our renowned Humanities and Medicine Program and is designed to drive a fundamental shift in pre-medical education. In response to major changes in the priorities of biomedical science and health care, FlexMed, which will be launched in the fall of 2013, offers college sophomores early acceptance, with no MCAT requirement and a more progressive pre-med preparation.
Global Health Track
Global Health Track (GHT) is a five year, MD/MPH dual degree program that offers advanced coursework, mentorship, and field experiences to help prepare medical students for careers in global health. Students enter the dual degree program in their first year of medical school and are matched with a faculty mentor from Mount Sinai Global Health based on their academic interests and career goals. During the first two years, participants complete their MPH coursework. Thesis research is carried out during the summer between first and second year through the “Global Health Summer Experience” program at one of our partner sites. Students will have an opportunity to further develop their critical thinking and research skills by engaging in a year-long scholarly activity, dedicating a full academic year to mentored, global health field work after their second or third year of medical school.
A highly selective, strongly mentored program, PORTAL (Patient-Oriented Research Training and Leadership) is a dual MD/MSCR degree, designed for medical students with a passion for clinical investigation who seek to become leaders as physician-scientists.
This program educates future physician-scientists in a rigorous, integrated joint degree program in an environment that promotes cutting-edge research.
