Up close and personal

Each medical student is matched with a Connecticut-based primary care physician who serves as that student's preceptor in the Medical Student Home (MeSH) program. Here, Van Mai MD ’18 meets with patients of Dr. Renika McLeod-Labissiere at Prospect Family Medicine .

Addressing one of health care's biggest needs

By 2025, the country will need an estimated 21,000 additional family medicine physicians to do the curve-bending work of front-line care. It is family physicians who know their patients best, who can provide early detections and interventions, who can help their patients navigate the health system and understand the social determinants affecting their own health. Family physicians perform minor surgeries, deliver emergency room care, treat patients in the ICU, and perform routine OB care. In terms of public health outcomes, family physicians have enormous leverage and impact. While we will graduate qualified specialists, preparing students to meet the over-arching need for family medicine is our primary goal.

Life after Quinnipiac

We will graduate the first 59 students from our young school in the spring of 2017. As future residents, they will distinguish themselves by the depth of the research scholarship that was required of them as students. They will stand out for the rigorous clinical training and high professional standards they received. They will find work at hospitals and clinics and medical centers across the U.S. – in many cases thanks to the exposure they had as students to our national network of partnerships and affiliated institutions. When they become physicians, they will expand and enrich the network of resources available to the generations of students coming up behind them.

“We tell our medical students that they need to know how to tell their story - and that they’re part of a lifelong story.”
