Med students squeezed amid wider competition for rotation space

Touro in the News
September 29, 2015

Earlier this year, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education would expand into the CUNY School of Medicine and become New York’s newest four-year medical program. It will affiliate with St. Barnabas Health Center in the Bronx, a teaching hospital in one of the poorest and sickest counties in the United States.

The New York school officials argue that paying for clerkships offers foreign schools a competitive advantage. They say that it keeps their students out, and allows for a lower quality student, who was likely rejected by U.S. schools, to attend.

“To match them we’d have to raise our tuition significantly,” said Robert Goldberg, executive dean of the Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine. “$20,400 per student in their clinical years.”

Enrollment in the seminar has grown from 30 to 80 students.
