FAQs: William D King

Q: Why is it called a student doctoring program? 

A: Because the program allows students to complete both undergraduate and graduate degrees, as well as provide time for them to study for USMLE 

Q: Where do the students come from? 

A: The majority of the students come from countries to which there has been a significant outsourcing of medical care. In other words, they are foreign citizens that have trained outside of the US. Some students also come directly from high school and college into the program.

Q: How long does it take? 

A: Undergraduate years 1-3 would be similar to any normal undergraduate degree path. Year 4 is focused on basic science courses needed to prepare for graduate studies in medicine and surgery – although a few basic courses could be taken as electives during year 3 or 4, depending on the student’s previous academic performance. Clinical rotations begin after year 3/ and continue through to graduation as a medical doctor. 

Q: What are the tuition costs? 

A: The program is a full-tuition scholarship for all students which include room and board. All students entering the program receive full financial support throughout their time in NYIT’s College of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences, as well as graduation from our Doctor of Medicine program. This would include a monthly stipend, paid over 10 months per year, from NYIT during clinical rotations. In addition to this, NYIT commits to covering any additional living & travel expenses incurred by the student outside of these allowances. This would allow them to live cost effectively with minimal debt at the end of their studies, allowing them to pursue residency positions without incurring further debt.

Conclusion by William D King:

Although we do not know if this will ever come to pass. Whether the USMLE and state medical boards (and numerous other agencies) would allow such a program is for them to decide, but it would seem that the practice of medicine in third world countries could benefit from an increase in medical manpower as is currently being done by those outside of America through organizations such as those described above. Additionally, with the advent of new technologies for distance learning, perhaps an educational model similar to those already described might someday be used within America as well.
