Through innovative and inclusive practices, Connecticut is preparing the next generation of physicians to be clinically excellent, culturally competent, and socially conscious. With three medical schools and an extensive network of healthcare systems, medical professionals are advancing their careers to treat patients in their community.
Connecticut’s growing healthcare network is committed to improving the health of all people. Hospitals are fuelled by a local talent pipeline of grads from the UConn School of Medicine, Yale School of Medicine, and Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University where inpatient and outpatient specialties are honed and cutting-edge scientific research careers are made.
Here are local medical students and professionals on their mission for health equity at the Student National Medical Association’s Annual Medical Education Conference in Hartford, the nation’s largest gathering of underrepresented medical students. Read why these ambitious minds are drawn to Connecticut’s inclusive environment enriched by diversity.
