AMSA Pharm-free Scorecard 2010
I Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine at Hofstra
City: Hempstead State: NY

Hofstra North Shore is a new medical school opened in New York State.  Its first students began classes in September 2011.  They will receive a 2 year grace period during which they are not required to submit policies to the AMSA PharmFree Scorecard, but after that point they will receive an "F" grade if no policies are submited.  This 2 year period is in line with the time that medical students traditionally start their clinical medical education.

We have been in contact with Hofstra and we have been supplied a set of draft policies.  We are awaiting confirmation of when these policies are in effect.



This institution did not provide any new or additional for the 2012-13 AMSA PharmFree Scorecard. This institution's evaluation was last updated on 2/25/2012.
