MD to DNP Program: Option for those unable to Match
Are you out of luck trying to secure a US medical residency? Looking for an opportunity to use the medical knowledge and clinical skills that you spent years developing?
We are proud to introduce a new MD to DNP (Doctor of Nurse Practitioner) program. This is an opportunity for FMGs who have been unable to secure a residency position in the United States to continue to work clinically and utilize their considerable medical knowledge. It is an accelerated academic program that leads to the completion of a Doctor of Nurse Practitioner (DNP) degree in three years instead of the traditional 6 years.
First, the participants will complete their Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree in 15 months followed by entrance into the two year DNP program. Graduates of the program will be expected to work in primary care in the Bronx for a period of time following completion of the program. Entrance into the program is competitive, and scholarships will be available on a limited basis. We will also work with participants to offer part-time work opportunities when possible to provide some income.
