The newly established Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University will offer an information session for prospective students on Wednesday, Nov. 14, from 5:30-7 p.m. on the North Haven Campus, 370 Bassett Road.
The Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine, founded to address the pressing national need for more primary care doctors, will enroll a charter class of 60 students for the Fall 2013. The Liaison Committee on Medical Education has granted the medical school preliminary accreditation and the Connecticut State Board of Education recently approved the medical degree.
At the information sessions, prospective students and families, academic advisers and others interested in learning more about the medical school will have the opportunity to hear about the school’s distinct mission and unique approach to medical education. The medical school is aiming to become a national model of interprofessional health professions education and improve the way health care is delivered. Medical students at Quinnipiac will be part of a learning environment where they will interact with students from Quinnipiac’s School of Health Sciences and School of Nursing to learn to become effective members of a primary health care team.
Those whose attend the information sessions will meet with faculty as well as admissions and financial aid officers. Information will be provided on academics, admissions, financial aid and scholarships and student life.
The information session will take place on the North Haven Campus, Building 1, room 290 . The session is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the North Haven Campus parking garage.
