It’s no secret that many doctors aren’t particularly fond of lawyers, especially if they have ever been threatened with a medical malpractice lawsuit. But officials at Quinnipiac University foresee a time when doctors and lawyers have a better working relationship. To that end, they hope it starts in their classrooms
Attorney Leonard Dwarica, of Guilford, has been appointed as Quinnipiac University School of Law’s director for the Center for Health Law and Policy. As part of his new role, he will be responsible for maintaining an active relationship with the university’s soon-to-open Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine and bringing law and medical students closer together. Beginning next fall, the law school and medical school will share the same campus in North Haven.
