East Stroudsburg University will now be partnering with The Commonwealth Medical College in Scranton to offer a collaborative masters program. The partnership hopes to better prepare future health care professionals.
“It is an opportunity for students to be fully trained not only in medicine, but in public health where we need health care delivery to go. So it is a great opportunity,” said East Stroudsburg University President Marcia Welsh, PhD.
The partnership is the first of its kind within the state and one that medical student Carol Fouad plans to enroll in.
“I don`t think you can separate patient centered medicine from understanding first public health, so I think it would be a great opportunity for me,” said Fouad.
