Med students squeezed amid wider competition for rotation space

September 29, 2015

Earlier this year, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education would expand into the CUNY School of Medicine and become New York’s newest four-year medical program. It will affiliate with St. Barnabas Health Center in the Bronx, a teaching hospital in one of the poorest and sickest counties in the United States.

The New York school officials argue that paying for clerkships offers foreign schools a competitive advantage. They say that it keeps their students out, and allows for a lower quality student, who was likely rejected by U.S. schools, to attend.

“To match them we’d have to raise our tuition significantly,” said Robert Goldberg, executive dean of the Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine. “$20,400 per student in their clinical years.”

August 18, 2015

Some incoming medical students don’t learn enough anatomy before starting school. This four-week crash course seeks to fill the gaps.

It was Saturday in the park with a mission – promoting preventive health care and lifestyle changes, to head off major health problems and keep folks out of emergency rooms.

Talk about access to information. Saturday, at Thrall Park, within easy walking distance of downtown Middletown, MCHC’s third annual Health Fair featured about 40 exhibitors, offering information about a huge body of health issues – from coping with Alzheimer’s disease and cancer, to nutrition, maternal and infant services and dental health. About 300 people turned out during the four-hour event, Boyle said.
