  • We require passing grades within 1 standard deviation of the mean on USMLE I and II and/or COMLEX I and II- no exceptions.

  • We offer Shabbos spots on a case-by-case basis

  • We cannot offer shadow shifts at this time or onsite tours due to COVID restrictions

Medical Student



We are in the process of merging our Medical Student rotation, as we have done with the residency. It is anticipate that by July 1st, all students will have shifts at both Metropolitan hospital, AND now Harlem hospital. This is anticipated and not guaranteed so please keep in contact with us for more information. You can apply to us through VSAS.

Students who rotate with us work closely with residents and attendings throughout their rotation and are supervised while performing their own procedures. Students will also be actively involved in patient management and have computer access to follow their care. Weekly conferences are held at Metropolitan and Harlem along with dedicated workshops, simulation sessions and ultrasound trainings specifically designed for medical students.


Since COVID, there have been some updates on the allowances of outside rotations. As per national recommendation, students may now apply and rotate at one other site than their home institution through VSAS. Before applying to rotate with us please check with your institution first.
