“Working alongside students takes me back to my youth. It also enables me to honor the Hippocratic Oath by teaching and guiding young people in all aspects of life, including balancing work and family needs, stress management and their ongoing professional development.”

“Serving as a capstone mentor is a chance for doctors like me to broaden our knowledge and approach, investing time in original thought — something we don’t always have time to do in the midst of the daily grind.”

Our Partner Network

Netter student Avraham Rosen, MD ’22, works with David Howlett, MD, and his 11-month-old grandson Owen Howlett at Howlett’s East Granby Family Practice. We rely on our many clinical partners to provide hands-on learning experiences across diverse settings and patient populations as part of our precepting programs.

An expansive clinical network

Fully accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine’s first priority is preparing medical students from diverse backgrounds to reach their highest personal and professional potential. One hundred percent of the students from our first two classes successfully matched to residency programs at prestigious organizations, including Brown, Dartmouth, John Hopkins and Yale. Our students also often go on to successful residencies at many of our affiliate hospitals, retaining and growing their relationships formed while completing their clinical placements.

Our commitment to providing high-quality training extends to the clinical experiences students gain through multiple rotations, under the guidance of some of the most respected physicians in a variety of settings. The breadth of clinical work placements is instrumental to where students see themselves practicing medicine during and beyond their residency years.

We maintain a deep ancillary network of partnerships with over a dozen hospitals and health care centers in New England and Florida. These include not-for-profit children‘s hospitals, acute care community hospitals, senior care and retirement living communities, diagnostic and rehabilitation facilities, and beyond.
