The search for faculty is under way, a site adjacent to Vassar Hospital has been chosen for a dedicated building, and the first class of future physicians to be minted in the Hudson Valley are expected to begin their studies in 2022 at the Marist Health Quest School of Medicine. The collaboration will address a nationwide need: It’s predicted that the US will face a deficit of as many as 121,300 doctors by 2030. Regionally, a 2009 SUNY Albany study identified the Hudson Valley as likely to experience the second-worst shortage in the state, behind New York City.
