The Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine is taking aim at one of the most pressing needs in the nation today--more primary care physicians. Significant demographic changes are projected to drive the demand for primary care providers well beyond the current and anticipated supply.
Quinnipiac is in a unique position to implement an innovative approach to medical education. Students in its new medical school will have the opportunity to learn side by side with students in the University's well-regarded health professions programs as they learn to deliver patient-centered care as members of a team that views a patient through a singular lens.
Before physicians can attend to the health of others, they first must be well themselves. The educational program in the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine has been designed to foster balance and allow students to thrive physically, emotionally, socially and psychologically and make the successful transition from student to physician.
A learning community where the faculty's primary mission is to teach, where diversity and inclusivity are paramount and where cultural competence and social engagement are inherent are all part of the vision. And from this vision, the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine will open its doors in Fall 2013.
