New York Medical Live Center

Prep for the USMLE in New York City — the biggest city and the cultural mecca of United States.

Our six-story center, which is the original building owned by the founder (Stanley Kaplan), is centrally located in Midtown Manhattan. The center sits among some of the tallest buildings in the world and is nestled blocks from the world-famous attractions-Central Park, the shopping strip on 5th Avenue, the glowing Times Square, the Theater District, and the world-famous Carnegie Hall, to name a few. During study breaks, take advantage of hundreds of restaurants, rooftop bars, museums, shops, and famous landmarks all in the area and around New York City. No wonder they call it the city that never sleeps!

  1. Take a walk at the Flatiron District's Madison Square Park.
  2. Have a picnic and bird watch in Central Park.
  3. Visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
  4. Catch a Broadway show in Midtown's Theater District.

I loved getting to make great friends with people from so many different countries. The most supportive and understanding person I encountered during my whole year and a half at Kaplan was my DSO-always astoundingly professional and helpful in ALL matters regarding my studies and me.
