New M.D. College Receives Accreditation

NSU continues to expand its program offerings and options for students through its new Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) program. NSU has received preliminary accreditation for its College of Allopathic Medicine (M.D. College) from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education. This milestone allows the new medical school to accept an inaugural class of 50 students to its Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) program. Those students will matriculate in August 2018. NSU is now one of only 148 M.D. programs in the United States.

The new college’s innovative educational program will be taught in the Health Professions Division complex on our Fort Lauderdale/Davie Campus. We are planning to build a state-of-the-art medical education building, which will house the college in close proximity to other health-related programs.

“As a new medical college, we are in a unique positon to leverage institutional resources and external partnerships to create a new educational model that will transform the delivery of health care in our community and beyond,” said Johannes W. Vieweg, M.D., FACS, founding dean of the college.
