About Albert Einstein College of Medicine


By the constant efforts of Dr. Samuel Belkin, president of Yeshiva University he entered into an agreement with Vincent Impellitteri, New York City mayor at that time that a Albert Einstein College of Medicine will be built in New York under which will fall the responsibility of Bronx Municipal Hospital Center, which was under construction at that time. On 15th March 1953 Albert Einstein agreed that his name could be used for the first medical college in the city of New York since 1897. The first building, now known as Leo Forchheimer Medical Sciences Building was inaugurated in October 1953. The first batch of the Medical College consisted of 53 men and 3 women medical students on 12th September 1955.


The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is ranked consistency as one of the Best Medical Schools by US News & World Report. It is also ranked 13th in an outcome-based study by Academic Medicine.

Guidelines after getting into Albert Einstein College of Medicine

You have cleared the first and the toughest step of this journey. Now, what next? Now, comes the next step and a bit tough one comprising of a lot of challenges for you but don’t worry, if you have qualified for the first step, it’ll be easy for you to clear the next step too. It will require a bit of hard work and your focus to overcome these challenges. Here are the few tips mentioned below to help you:

Managing Time:

First things first, manage your time! Time is the key to your success and of course, failure. If you have a hold of your time, you’re going to be successful no matter what. I’m not specifically talking about a medical college but if you talk about any university, managing time is really important to survive there. If you’re going to get into all this stuff of managing your time from the very start, the medical college will be comparatively easy for you because you’re already a champ but the results are going to be opposite if you’re not going to manage your time. Now, the question is how to manage time? Firstly, take notes of everything from day one. Yes, it helps a lot. Take notes in the classes, how is everything going to work, the processes, and procedures, etc. Once you know how things work at your campus, make a schedule for them assigning most of the time to the most important tasks and try to complete each task within the timeframe provided. This helps you be on track and make things easier for you. As you have taken notes and assigned time to each task, it was more of a generalized schedule. Time to be a little more specific. All the homework, assignments, test or quizzes, everything should be noted by you separately in a daily to-do-list. Every task should be noted in that with the due date and several reminders should be set to avoid delays. Procrastination should be strictly avoided in medical college because completing your tasks as soon as possible will help you be on track. Otherwise, you’ll be in a big mess because you won’t be able to cope up with all the daily stuff. Regularly following that to-do-list will help you complete all the tasks on time and meet your deadlines.


Is it necessary that your teacher’s teaching method will match your learning method? Well, it’s not. This is the main reason a lot of the students who were pretty good in their studies before getting into a medical college, becomes frustrated and are unable to continue. They had this image in their mind that they have always been pretty good in the past and they’ll be good in the future too, so they don’t pay enough attention to the studies at the start and then regret later on. Well, don’t worry and don’t stress about this if it has already happened to you. It happens with everyone but do remember that you can’t control everything. One can only try to do those things which are in his control rather than stressing over those things which were never in his control. Whenever you don’t understand anything in the class, ask a friend or any other classmate to help you out with it. Try to make that thing clear to you as soon as possible and not leave it for the future because you’ll end up missing something and you won’t understand another thing because you missed that thing in the first place and BOOM, you don’t understand anything now. Try to get things clear when they’re fresh in your mind, it’ll help you understand faster! Try to indulge yourself in self-study but if it doesn’t work for you, go for the group study. You can benefit a lot from group study, do try to seek help and help others too if needed. Again, allocating time to self-study and group-study is the key thing.

Dr. Najeeb Lectures:

For instance, you end up in a situation where nothing is working for you or you aren’t benefiting from any of the things mentioned above or you don’t feel like putting the effort into all that stuff, then you can always go to Dr. Najeeb Lectures for getting help. As I mentioned before, what if your teacher’s learning method doesn’t match your learning method and you end up understanding nothing? Well, I can guarantee you that Dr. Najeeb’s lectures will match your learning method! If you don’t feel like getting help from other people and you want to rely on self-study, then these video lectures are going to help you a lot. Dr. Najeeb’s Lectures are the world’s most popular medical Lectures, covering all the topics of Gross Anatomy, Neuro-anatomy, Embryology, Histology, Physiology, Biochemistry, Genetics, Pharmacology, Microbiology, Immunology, and Pathology. These lectures almost cover all the topics included in the current medical curriculum of most of the medical colleges and are a great source to understand every topic you’re being taught in your class. These lectures don’t contain that bookish knowledge due to which you don’t understand things in the class, whereas it is the visual representation of that knowledge that will help you understand things better. The hand-drawn illustrations included in these lectures will make you grasp every concept quickly. Furthermore, one can get lifetime access to these lectures and even download the app to avail them anytime, anywhere.

Self-Care/Rewarding Yourself:

The only thing you have to do for the rest of your time in a medical college is study? NO! Don’t overburden yourself. Despite all the rigorous studying, tight schedules, frequent exams, and tests, you need to take some time out for yourself to care about YOU. Try to indulge yourself in several extra-curricular activities happening in the college, they’ll help you to have a break from your studies. Just try to complete everything on time, so that you can enjoy everything else too to keep yourself relax! Reward yourself frequently whenever you achieve something, for instance, you got the highest marks in a class test then you need to reward yourself for your continuous hardships. Find a hobby, which will help you freshen your mind so that you can work and learn better.

Choose your FRIENDS wisely:

This step is very important and should be kept in mind from day one. Be very careful and very picky about people. No, it doesn’t mean that you don’t talk to anyone but chose your friends wisely. Help every person who asks for help from you and avoid getting into any conflict with anyone. If you end up getting into one, try to resolve that as soon as possible, so that you don’t get distracted from your studies because of that. Carefully observe the people around you and make friends very carefully because friends can help you spend the rest of your time in college nicely or they can ruin it. Making more allies than enemies is a good option, help people a lot because they’ll help you out too when you’ll need it. Try to be a little sharp-minded and keep yourself from getting exploited. Help out others because this way, you can make more allies than enemies and they could end up helping you in your time of need. In the end, we would like to assure you that there are always ups and downs in life. Don’t lose hope, keep our tips in mind and Good luck!

Currently, the only things saving my embryology and 1st-trimester ultrasound marks - keep the wealth of education flowing! Highly recommended!
Maryam Moradi The University of Texas, Austin
Maryam Moradi
I bought lifetime access because I believe there is no better source for learning the foundation of medicine. I strongly recommend him to anyone who cares about true learning and not merely memorizing!
Jackson David Reynolds University of North Georgia
Jackson David Reynolds
Dr. Najeeb Lectures are top notch. Comprehensive medical lectures of the utmost quality across all preclinical (and many clinical) topics. Fantastic for deepening one's understanding for clinical practice and licensing/board examinations.
Jacob Joseph Columbus, Ohio
Jacob Joseph
Dr. Najeeb is the single most spectacular medical teacher you will ever have! I love this man. He has clarified everything from the coagulation cascade, immunology, neurology, and embryology. His sense of humor and brilliant illustrations make everything stick well in your memory. His ability to illustrate 3-dimensional relationships has been useful for excelling in anatomy. I cannot thank you enough for all the wonderful work you do. I recommend your lectures to anyone who wants to truly understand medicine!

I'm grappling with my online studies in Infectious Disease at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. It's made me realize what a visual learner I still am. So these vids are making what was murky crystal clear. While I am easily distracted when I have to do hours of straight reading, I am glued to the videos. I've looked for a series of such videos for months. A million thanks - Dr Najeeb has a true passion for teaching and can convey highly complex topics in an understandable and fun way.
