The Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education

  1. 1. The Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education Steven Bier MD
  2. 2. The Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education Well before Steven Bier, MD, became a prominent radiologist, he was a student at Brooklyn’s John Dewey High School considering his options for going to medical school. Eventually, Dr. Bier settled on the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education, a then-experimental program at the City College of New York that integrates two years of medical school into its undergraduate studies. Like many graduates of the Sophie Davis School, Dr. Steven Bier went on to a long and successful medical career, and currently works as an attending radiologist at the Jersey City Medical Center.
  3. 3. The Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education After earning a BS degree from City College, students of the Sophie Davis School require only two more years at an affiliated medical school to obtain their MD degrees. At the time of its founding in 1973, the Sophie Davis School was a novel approach to providing medical education targeted to under-represented minority populations and represented an innovative solution for supplying primary care physicians to underserved communities. Several decades later, the program is now a proven success, with a student body of approximately 350, a parallel Physician Assistant Program, and extensive medical research opportunities.
