long island business news

"The common thread among all of the students in the program is their motivation to not just take care of a singe person- they want to help a community," says College of Osteopathic Medicine Assistant Professor William Blazey, D.O., in Long Island Business News (subscription required), referring to students in the school's accelerated medical program geared toward those who want to practice family medicine.

"They see the bigger point of medicine." Blazey, fourth-year student Ankbur Bhambri and alumna Bernadette Riley say they are drawn to family medicine, despite its lower salary, because want to spend more time with their patients, practice broadly, and coordinate their care.
