Located in New York City, Columbia University boasts the country's oldest premedical program for graduate students. Their medical school has an enrollment of about 4,000 students, and prospective students get plenty of hands-on experience. Cornell University, located in upstate New York, gives its students the chance to work at New York Presbyterian hospitals.
