A life of medicine: Dr. Leonard Bristol

December 2, 2009
By DIANE?CHASE, Special to the Enterprise

Born in New York City in April of 1919, Leonard Bristol doesn't remember a time when he did not want to be a physician. Attending the pre-med program at New York University, he completed his Doctorate of Medicine in 1944 at Long Island College of Medicine, now known as SUNY Downstate College of Medicine. Downstate College of Medicine is touted as revolutionizing medical education in the United States for being the first medical school founded with a hospital that made bedside training an essential part of the student's education. Now that philosophy is standard in medical schools.
