Hofstra University and North Shore-LIJ Health System are partners in the establishment and operation of the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine. The School of Medicine is built upon the strong clinical and graduate medical education programs of the Health System and the robust research and academic programs of Hofstra University and the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research at North Shore-LIJ Health System. A brief history of each of the partners and of the School’s development is included below. History of Hofstra University and the History of the North Shore-LIJ Health System History of Hofstra University History of Hofstra University History of NSLIJ History of NSLIJ Development of the Medical School: In 2006, the Association of American Medical Colleges, citing population increases, a doubling between 2000 and 2030 of the number of citizens over the age of 65, and an aging physician workforce, recommended that medical school enrollment be increased by 30 percent by 2015. By this time, the University and the Health System each had reached a rapid-growth stage of development at which collaborating to develop a nationally renowned medical school became a highly attractive and advantageous endeavor. Aligned in their visions for their institutions, Hofstra University President Stuart Rabinowitz and North Shore-LIJ Health System President/CEO Michael Dowling began to discuss the advantages of collaborating to create an innovative school of medicine. The two institutions established the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine to reflect the true partnership between the two entities, which was initially referred to as the Hofstra University School of Medicine in partnership with North Shore-LIJ Health System. This unique partnership brought together two outstanding institutions, ensuring that the medical school, from the outset, would have excellent clinical training opportunities, research opportunities, and academic infrastructure.
