Jerome Pomeranz, MD

Medical School: Frank H. Netter, MD School of Medicine at Quinnipaic University

Hi, I’m Jerry Pomeranz. I was born in Boston and grew up in the idyllic suburb of Brookline, Massachusetts where I could see Fenway Park and part of the Boston Marathon route without ever leaving the house of my childhood. A huge part of my upbringing was going to a Jewish private school from kindergarten through twelfth grade where I made friends I am sure to keep for a lifetime. For college I attended Binghamton University in upstate New York, where I majored in Math and deeply expanded my experience of the world. I spent the next few years working, including at the front desk in a primary care clinic, before attending medical school in North Haven, Connecticut. While at the Frank H. Netter School of Medicine, I was drawn to Family Medicine due to its vast opportunities to care for the people who entrust the medical system with caring for their most valuable possession: their health.

One of my top considerations for a Family Medicine residency program was that it was unopposed; i.e. there are no other residencies at the hospital. In my mind that allows for the broadest education possible. When I googled “unopposed family medicine programs,” Memorial was the top listing. From their website, I could get a sense of how much caring and thoughtfulness has gone into the program, which was only further solidified when I met them at the AAFP conference in Kansas City and my interview in South Bend. The first word that comes to mind when I think about the program now is “community,” and I’m sure glad to be joining this one.

When I am away from my patients, I enjoy playing the harmonica, running, basketball, soccer, tennis and playing most sports. I also am a student of the ancient far-eastern game of Go, and am excited to visit the National Parks around the Great Lakes.
