Lang Youth Medical Program

Established in 2003 with the support of noted philanthropist Eugene M. Lang, the Lang Youth Medical Program (Lang Youth) sponsored by NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (NYP) is a six-year science enrichment program. Lang Youth serves talented youth in the Washington Heights/Inwood community who aspire to pursue medical and nonmedical careers in health care.

Utilizing NYP resources, Lang Youth offers its students a hands-on science curriculum. In addition, Lang Youth provides opportunities for character development by integrating the curriculum with mentoring, internships, and college preparation outside of the classroom. The Scholars also participate in community service, which prepares them to be ambassadors in their community.

During the academic year, Lang Youth Scholars attend classes at NYP, Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Summer programming is held Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in July. Classes are taught by undergraduate, graduate, and medical students from Columbia University and neighboring institutions.
