NYU Post-Graduate Medical School
The New York University Post-Graduate Medical School (NYU PGMS) was founded in 1948 as a result of the consolidation of the Post-Graduate Division of the College of Medicine and the New York Post-Graduate Medical School. The College of Medicine first began offering educational courses in 1914, and in 1945 it became organized into the Post-Graduate Division of the college. NYU PGMS became an accredited provider of Continuing Medical Education (CME) in March, 1975.

NYU PGMS today offers courses in almost all branches of medicine. NYU’s twenty-nine academic departments serve as the internal source of expertise for the identification of professional practice gaps. Together with the NYU PGMS, they plan and develop CME activities at NYU. Many academic departments are also represented on the CME Advisory Committee, which meets monthly to advise the CME program.
