Marist Health Quest School of Medicine

Pushing the Boundaries of Healthcare

The Marist Nuvance School of Medicine aspires to become a nationally recognized leader in technology-enabled medical education, discovery, and care delivery. Pending accreditation approval, the School of Medicine will open in 2022, meeting significant demand for physician education nationally. The School of Medicine will be located on the Vassar Brothers Medical Center campus in Poughkeepsie near Marist’s main campus.

Through the use of Marist’s advanced learning management systems and the addition of Artificial and Augmented Intelligence (AI), the School of Medicine will be innovative—transforming the traditional medical school model and ultimately changing how medical students, faculty, and patients experience healthcare. 


Announcement of Creation of Medical School

A pioneering collaboration between Marist College and Nuvance Health (formerly Health Quest) will change the academic and healthcare landscape in the mid-Hudson Valley by training the next generation of physicians who are so crucial to the future of healthcare in the region.

The two organizations will partner to create the Marist Nuvance School of Medicine to provide physician education that transforms patient care and prepares new doctors for today’s technologically advanced healthcare environment.

The School of Medicine will seek approvals from the national accrediting body for medical education programs – the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) – as well as the New York State Education Department and the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The first class is expected to begin studies in 2022. Read More...
