The medical school admits 96 MD and 8 MD/PhD students annually who learn in the Double Helix Curriculum which was the first in the country to integrate clinical and basic science all four years and continues to offer early meaningful clinical experience. Our focus on self-directed, life-long learning incorporates the Biopsychosocial Model which began in Rochester. With opportunities in research, community service and international health, students can pursue personal interests within the curriculum. 

There is a total of 744 trainees in ACGME accredited programs. 583 people in 25 residency programs and 161 people in 53 fellowships.

Nearly 500 graduate students and 200 postdoctoral appointees are in training to become the basic, translational and clinical investigators of the future.
