Mount Sinai School of Medicine?

I'm an upcoming sophomore at an undergraduate university right now. I've been doing some research into which med schools I am going to consider applying to. Unfortunately, money is definitely a big issue. I'm interested in Mount Sinai, and decided to look up financial info on them.

This is what it says on their website:
"The Mount Sinai School of Medicine offers all Ph.D. and M.D./Ph.D. students who are accepted for matriculation a support package that includes a stipend ( $32,000 for the 2010 - 2011 school year), the full cost of tuition, and a comprehensive medical insurance package. A competitive Travel Fund is available for travel to scientific meetings and special courses.
Support is continued throughout the student's program as long as satisfactory progress is made. Students in the Program are encouraged to apply for appropriate individual fellowships both for the honor that such an award confers and for the opportunity to enhance their own skills in preparing an extramural application.
For Candidates in all other graduate programs, assistance in obtaining financial aid is available. Scholarships may also be available to a limited number of highly qualified candidates."

Just to be clear, does this mean EVERY student accepted receives $32,000, the full cost of tuition, and medical insurance? All the students need to pay for is room/board and other living expenses?
I was just wondering because this really surprised me and I was wondering if many med schools are this generous.

    This for MD/PhD students and PhD students, NOT MD only students. The best of the MD/PhD and PhD programs are comparable.
