Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine

About Us

Welcome from Dean, Lawrence G. Smith, MD

Dean, Lawrence G. Smith

Dear Students,

Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine is ready to be a national leader in Medical Education. We've set out not to build a medical school that looks like old ones, but to identify what works and then create a unique medical school on Long Island—one of the most ethnically diverse, immigrant-rich communities in the world—and set a precedent for the future in medical training. We hope you are as excited as we are to begin this journey.

I hope you take advantage of this unique opportunity and look forward to sharing this journey with you.

Lawrence G. Smith, MD
Founding Dean, Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine
