Weill Cornell Medical College’s NIH funding topped $65M in 2019. All third-year medical students complete a capstone project called Areas of Concentration in which they spend at least six months doing in-depth research on a topic of their choosing. Thanks to this focus on research, it’s no wonder that almost 40% of Weill graduates become full-time faculty at academic medical centers, where they can continue their research. The incoming class of 2019 had a median undergraduate science GPA of 3.88 and a median MCAT score of 518.
