SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hello all, So, during the summer I was reading about how the AMA was predicting a shortage of doctors in the year 2015 if admissions werent increased by about 30%. The solution to this problem was not said to be admitting more students but to open more med schools and Hofstra was listed as a possibility. It has now become a reality with the university announcing its cooperation with North Shore University hospital in opening a med school. I read about some med schools opening up in similar fashion, to respond to a future shortage of doctors, in Florida and the competition to matriculate to these schools being considerably less intense. Does anyone know anything about this? or what it will be like when Hofstra eventually opens? Does anyone actually even know or have any idea when Hofstra may open? and will preference be given to instaters or even Long Islanders? Thanks!
