How a New Medical School Aims to Address New Jersey's Physician Shortage

A new medical school coming to New Jersey will be the state's first private medical school and, officials hope, a key engine to address the physician shortage.

Next year, a new medical school will open in New Jersey, the state's third and its first private medical school. The medical school is a partnership between Seton Hall University and the Hackensack University Health Network.

In this video interview, Hackensack University Health Network CEO Robert C. Garrett discusses the origins of the new school, the attributes that set it apart, and how he hopes it will help address the shortage of physicians in New Jersey and beyond.
