File:CityCollegeofNewYork.JPG The CUNY School of Medicine is a medical school that will open in the fall of 2016 as part of the City University of New York. The new medical school will be based in Harlem on the campus of the City College of New York and will partner with Saint Barnabas Health System in the South Bronx for clinical medical education.[1]

The Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education, established on the campus of the City College of New York in 1973, will expand into the CUNY School of Medicine.[2] Continuing the unique BS/MD program that has been in place for more than 40 years, matriculating students will undertake their undergraduate studies for the first 3 years at the school and then begin 2 years of didactic study in the sciences. Upon successful completion of the first 5 years of study, medical students will then complete their clinical training at St. Barnabas Hospital, culminating in their medical degree.
