St. Matthew’s University partners with University of New Haven

St. Matthew’s University recently signed an official Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the University of New Haven in Connecticut to expand access to education for aspiring medical professionals. Through this collaboration, University of New Haven students can apply for medical degrees through an expedited admissions process. Those accepted will also be eligible for academic merit awards and a partnership grant.

Ashish Upadhyaya, MBA, director of the University of New Haven’s Health Professions Advising Center and a lecturer in the Department of Population Health and Leadership in the university’s School of Health Sciences, expressed his enthusiasm about the new affiliation that is the beginning of a meaningful relationship between both institutions.

“The University of New Haven is grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with St. Matthew’s University to provide new opportunities for students looking to pursue careers in medicine,” said Professor Upadhyaya. “Our School of Health Sciences is proud to be at the forefront of delivering an innovative and progressive curriculum that prepares our students to help address the most pressing challenges in healthcare, enabling them to develop as leaders who are committed to transforming healthcare by promoting patient-centered care.”

Jerry Wargo, executive vice-president for marketing and enrollment for Caribbean Medical Schools, shared, “I am delighted that students from University of New Haven will now have access to our competitive programs through this partnership. Applying to medical school can be a challenging experience for many students, and this pathway allows them to have an additional option of a first-class medical education. I look forward to welcoming students, especially our first group of students, as they pursue their dreams of becoming physicians.”

Students who complete their Doctor of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine at St. Matthew’s University will be eligible to apply for residency programs and licensure to practice in the United States or Canada.
