NYU School of Medicine yesterday announced it will offer full-tuition scholarships to all current and future students in its M.D. degree program. The scholarships will cover $55,018 in annual tuition costs. “We believe that with our tuition-free initiative, we have taken a necessary, rational step that addresses a critical need to train the most talented physicians, unencumbered by crushing debt,” said Robert Grossman, M.D., dean of the school and CEO of NYU Langone Health. “We hope that many other academic medical centers will soon choose to join us on this path.”
