Application & Admission Requirements

When to Apply

You should apply during your senior year in high school. You can also apply during your post-high school study in yeshivot and seminaries in Israel or elsewhere. High school graduates who have not enrolled as full-time students at a Touro University undergraduate school, or at any regionally-accredited college or university are eligible, as well.

Please note: You must first apply to the LCM Honors Program (HP) prior to submitting the Medical Honors Pathway (MHP) application. The MHP deadline is December 21, 2023. 

Academic Requirements

In order to be considered for the Medical Honors Pathway applicants must have:

  • SAT score (math/verbal) of at least 1400, and writing score of at least 660
  • Un-weighted high school GPA of 3.7

If you meet these academic standards and apply to the Medical Honors Pathway, you will be interviewed by a member of the New York Medical College’s Admissions Committee, after admission to a Touro University undergraduate school.

Applicants must also submit

  • Two letters of recommendation attesting to the maturity and qualifications of the applicant for the Medical Honors Pathway
  • An essay not to exceed 5,300 characters, prepared by the applicant, discussing why you are interested in a career in medicine and enrollment in the Medical Honors Pathway

Applications to the Medical Honors Pathway will be reviewed after a student has been accepted to a Touro University undergraduate school.
