We believe that the optimal learning environment for residents is one that balances clinical practice, community involvement, and an environment of inquiry and academic collaboration. To achieve this we have formed partnerships with several local universities that allow us to provide the best of both worlds- a world-class academic environment within a Top 100 community hospital.
University of Connecticut
We serve as a site for UConn's third-year Family Medicine Clerkship and its fourth-year Inpatient Family Medicine Sub-Internship. Middlesex faculty are actively involved in teaching at the medical school campus, which is only a twenty minute drive from Middletown.
Yale University School of Medicine does not have a department of family medicine, so our program serves as a home for Yale students interested in family medicine. We serve as a popular site for Yale's fourth-year Primary Care Clerkship. We are consistently rated as the top-rated site in what is considered the top-rated clerkship at Yale. Our faculty are active on campus supporting the Yale Family Medicine Interest Group.
The new Frank H. Netter M.D. School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University has now enrolled three classes. Its innovative curriculum and primary care mission are very exciting, and we are pleased to join them as a major clinical partner. Our faculty are active on campus teaching first and second year students, and 3rd year students complete their Family Medicine Clerkship at our residency program, Middlesex Hospital, and in community practices throughout our county.
