UConn Health is located in the Farmington Valley in Central Connecticut, approximately 10 miles from the state capital. The health science campus includes the School of Medicine, School of Dental Medicine, and The Graduate School.
The faculty of the UConn School of Medicine is diverse. We have over 1,100 faculty members at the main campus and affiliated institutions. Approximately 19 percent are full professors; 17 percent are associate professors; 58 percent are assistant professors; and 6 percent are instructors. Forty-one percent are female. There are 117 tenured faculty. The school also has a robust roster of community-based and adjunct faculty who are also vital and contribute to our academic, clinical, teaching, and research missions.
The School of Medicine has 19 departments of which six are basic sciences and the remainder are clinical. In addition, the school has 12 interdisciplinary centers which draw faculty from diverse departments. The clinical arm of the School of Medicine is the John Dempsey Hospital, and there are strong affiliations with Hartford Hospital, Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, and the Hospital of Central Connecticut. The Jackson Laboratory has a new facility for personalized genomic medicine on the campus of UConn Health.
UConn Health is undergoing major renovations as part of Bioscience Connecticut supported by the State. A new, state-of-the-art Outpatient Pavilion opened 2015, and a new hospital tower with all private rooms will open in 2016.
The state-of-the-art research facilities, led by a talented faculty, place the University in the top 25 universities in NIH funding.
