It offers an integrated baccalaureate education with preclinical medical education and has a twofold mission: to expand access to medical careers among inner-city youths, particularly among underrepresented minorities, and to encourage the pursuit of primary care specialties among its graduates. Entrance to the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education is highly competitive, with an acceptance rate around 7%, rivaling the Ivy League.In 2016, Sophie Davis became part of the new CUNY Medical School. Continuing the unique B.S./M.D. program that has been in place for more than 40 years, matriculating students will undertake their undergraduate studies at the City College of New York for the first 3 years and then begin 2 years of didactic study in the sciences at CUNY Medical School. 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.Sophie Davis was one of the first - and last - baccalaureate degree-granting physician assistant programs in the country. Beginning in fall 2016, the school will transition that program into a 28-month master's of science program in physician assistant studies.
