New York's 16 medical schools have 120 more students this fall than last year, including the first in a pair of three-year programs that allow students to graduate faster and with less debt.
Associated Medical Schools of New York says the 2,424 new medical students represent an enrollment increase of 120 over last year. More than half are state residents.
Nearly half are women and 3 percent are international students. Most programs last four years with annual tuition ranging from $30,000 to $50,000.
New York University's School of Medicine has 162 new students, including 16 in its new three-year program.
The Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons has 168 new students, including four who already hold Ph.D.s in biomedical sciences in a new three-year program.
