Dr. Bruce Koeppen, founding dean of the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University, told Irish America magazine that the 60-student inaugural class will be prepared with a wide spectrum of career options.
Housed in the university’s $100 million 325,000-square-foot Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, the program integrates formal classroom knowledge with clinical experience and a curriculum crafted to teach the fundamentals of clinical, behavioral and social sciences necessary to deliver world-class patient care, the magazine reports.
Fewer than 100 universities have both law and medical schools, the article points out.
“If you aspire to be the kind of physician this nation needs in the coming decades, you will find no better place to accomplish your dream than here at the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine,” Koeppen said. “We welcome all applicants who share our vision for the future.”
