Thank you for your interest in New Jersey Medical School.

We pride ourselves on cultivating a close-knit environment where our students have unlimited access to outstanding clinical and research opportunities, community outreach initiatives, patient centered learning, and quality student support services.

The mission of our admissions committee is to select a talented and diverse class of students who vigorously contribute to and care for the school community and society as a whole. In selecting candidates we give balanced consideration to a range of attributes such as academic excellence, life experiences, resilience, personal growth and maturity; as well as various other dimensions such as socioeconomic status, languages spoken, gender, race and ethnicity. Qualities of integrity, humanism, and passion are considered as these factors may influence an applicant's potential to succeed in medical school and are critical to their growth as physician-leaders. We are committed to fostering diversity in the medical profession and actively recruit students with varied backgrounds and experiences. Our focus on cultural competency ensures that students who graduate from NJMS will be well-prepared to take care of an increasingly diverse patient population.

There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.
