Season's Greetings from the Dean
With the holiday season upon us, I want to express my gratitude to the Zucker School of Medicine community, including faculty, staff, students, alumni, and donors, for making our school a special place to learn, work and grow.
A DYNAMIC COLLABORATION
World-Class Academics, Healthcare and Research
Our institution was built upon the strong clinical and graduate medical education programs of Northwell Health and the robust research and academic programs of Hofstra University, the Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
Diversity in Medicine
Diverse Backgrounds Treating a Diverse Population
We are committed to training innovative physicians whose backgrounds and experiences are as diverse as the people they treat. The Zucker School of Medicine ranks among the top medical schools in the country for primary care, and is one of the most diverse schools in the country, according to US News & World Report.
Join us on a new journey called Curriculum Renewal: Courage to Change. Together, we will assess our accomplishments, imagine the future, and build upon our firm foundation by addressing emerging societal trends, innovations in healthcare and technology, meeting the needs of future learners and educators, and most importantly, our patients.
