Education | NYU Grossman School of Medicine

At NYU Grossman School of Medicine, our commitment to innovation has led us to bold new ways of bridging the gap between basic science research, medical education, and quality of patient care. With our Curriculum for the 21st Century, C21, we combine advances in learning strategies, emerging technologies, and informatics solutions to fulfill our trifold mission: to teach, to serve, and to discover.

Every student enrolled in our MD degree program receives a full-tuition scholarship, regardless of merit or financial need, that covers the majority of the cost of attendance. Our full-tuition scholarships make it possible for aspiring physicians to choose a specialty based on their talent and inclinations to better serve the communities who need it most, and to more easily pursue scientific breakthroughs that improve how we care for patients. We aim to turn the best and brightest future physicians into leaders with the potential to transform healthcare.

Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer took a shot at the fitness regimen of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on Tuesday. 

Glazer answered questions for The Athletic and was asked whether the Steelers can emerge as a contender if Big Ben returns to at least 85 percent fitness after an elbow injury last year:

“First of all, let’s not put the words fitness and Ben Roethlisberger together, they are allergic to each other. There is no fitness in Ben Roethlisberger. His idea of a great offseason workout program is doing one yoga session, playing golf and drinking some beer. However, yes, what Mike Tomlin and Roethlisberger have done there has been incredible.

In March, Roethlisberger told Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette he took offense to people calling him fat at a time when he’s working harder than he has in years.

“I’ve heard people say I’m fat,

Before Going-to-the-Sun Road was constructed, Two Medicine was a primary destination for travelers arriving by train. After spending a night at Glacier Park Lodge, visitors climbed on horseback to travel to Two Medicine for a night in one of several rustic chalets or canvas tipis built by the Great Northern Railway. From Two Medicine, a system of backcountry tent camps and chalets within the park allowed these adventurous visitors to live in Glacier’s wild interior.

Backpackers and dayhikers find this area rich in scenery, providing those willing to travel by foot into the mountains with a true wilderness experience. Tenderfeet can also venture off the roads and into the wild with a casual boat tour on Two Medicine Lake.

Today, Two Medicine has become a somewhat off-the-beaten-path discovery for most park visitors. Once discovered however it’s easy to

Medications Information – Index of drug monographs produced by pharmacists and medical doctors

ACE (angiotensin
converting enzyme) inhibitors
-Angiotensin
converting enzyme inhibitors are used to treat high blood pressure. They
cause the blood vessels to relax and become larger and, as a result, blood
pressure is lowered. When blood pressure is reduced, the heart has an easier
time pumping blood. This is especially beneficial when the heart is
failing. ACE inhibitors also cause the process of hypertensive- and
diabetes-related kidney diseases to slow down and prevent early deaths
associated with high blood pressure. ACE inhibitors cannot be taken during
pregnancy since they may cause birth defects. Generic ACE inhibitors are
available.

acetaminophen (brand name:
Tylenol)
-A pain reliever and
fever reducer. The exact mechanism of action of acetaminophen is not
known. Acetaminophen relieves pain by elevating the pain threshold (that
is, by requiring a greater amount of pain to develop before

Dentist Tools – Dental Tools


dentist tools





 








dental instruments
From protective gear to specialized equipment, there are many tools
available to the dentist trade.  While some tools are specific to
certain branches of dentistry, there are a few basic instruments that
are used in just about all dental practices.


A mouth mirror is a hand-held tool that allows the dentist to see inside
the patient’s mouth, at a variety of angles.  The tool is designed to
provide indirect vision, as well as reflect light and magnify the interior
of the mouth.  Today’s mouth mirrors can be single-sided or
double-sided, and some are even disposable.



dental probes
Several different kinds of hand-held probes are used by the dentist. 
The one that is used most often in a regular examination is the sickle or
contra-angled probe.  This probe allows
