Apply to



MetHarlem has recently expanded its residency program to accommodate 36 students and applicants are interviewed by invitation only once proper application is sent. The program participates in ERAS and positions are offered through NRMP only. Of note:

  • We accept USMLE or COMLEX. If you are DO, USMLE is not required to apply to our program

  • 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

  • We encourage all different "types" of candidates to apply. We love non-traditional students! The MetHarlem family is unique and we are looking for applicants who fit in with us and will be happy during their training here. We do not believe in a "one-type-fits-all" approach.


Medical Student



We have successfully merged our Medical Student rotation, as we have done with the residency! Now, all students will have shifts at both Metropolitan hospital AND Harlem hospital the same as our residents do. This will allow you to experience the best of both worlds- community medicine and a high acuity trauma center as well as our awesome faculty at both sites! You can find us on VSAS listed under New York Medical College. We look forward to reviewing your application! Given the constantly changing recommendations due to COVID, before applying to rotate with us please check with your institution first. 

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 under the guidance of the Clerkship Director and the Resident Directors of Medical Student Education.

We also offer a two week dedicated ultrasound rotation through VSAS! Join in on all the hands on learning this rotation has to offer. Same as the clerkship, your scan shifts will be at both hospitals, working with both sets of faculty, under the guidance of the clerkship director and ultrasound directors.

Unfortunately we can only accept students through VSAS
