Medical college admissions officers compete to recruit the best and brightest applicants. When students are considering a medical school, many factors contribute to their final decision.
Weill Cornell Medical College is fortunate to feature many attractive elements: its location in Manhattan, the cultural capital of the world, large and diverse faculty, student and patient populations, a problem-based learning curriculum that focuses on student discovery, and one of the country's leading global medicine programs, with a campus in Qatar and clinical training program in Tanzania.
The Weill Cornell Music & Medicine Initiative serves as another factor to attract students who want to pursue a career in medicine but do not want to sacrifice their love of music. While our medical college continues to attract the brightest and most intellectually curious students, the Music & Medicine Initiative seeks to attract musically creative applicants, who can enroll knowing that their interest in music will be supported throughout their academic career at Weill Cornell Medicine.
