Meaningful work is part of the academic experience
A class of students conducts basic health screening for low-income residents in Bridgeport. A professor publishes an article exploring the prevalence of Lyme disease around Long Island Sound. When you have a working faculty that teaches and the opportunity to engage in impactful work, you get a feedback loop that makes your education truly organic and real.
Faculty scholarship investigates topics ranging from disease systems, chronic injury, and addiction to the efficacy of new and novel treatment methods. Professors are physicians, teachers and mentors who regularly share their research with students, spurring them early on to explore and engage in the work that will define their medical careers.
