We Are Creating the Next Generation of Medical Education

Dr. Bonita Stanton


For Founding Dean Bonita Stanton, M.D., a pediatrician by training and decades-long National Institutes of Health researcher, bringing to life New Jersey’s only private medical school is exciting and exhilarating. She has set for herself and her team a game-changing vision and mission.

“It’s an amazing opportunity to start a medical school and it is all the more remarkable to have an extraordinary clinical partner from the outset,” she remarks. With Seton Hall University and Hackensack Meridian Health working handin- hand, she is overseeing the creation of a uniquely collaborative and innovative medical education program. Encompassing the entire spectrum of health education, health care, research and biotechnology and working across health-related professions, the Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine at Seton Hall University will advance the way the nation educates its medical leaders of tomorrow.
