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.
Our students will understand that for physicians, healing a patient is an honor; curing is a relief; and preventing illness is a victory.
