Nick Bennett is currently a Peds ID Attending at CT Children’s Medical Center in Hartford, CT. He went to medical school in Cambridge, England, then trained in pediatrics and pediatric infectious disease at SUNY Upstate, in Syracuse NY (so he was literally “an Englishman in New York”).
Bennett’s background is in virology and molecular biology (specifically HIV viral packaging) but he has also researched respiratory viral infections in neonates, and taken part in industry-sponsored clinical trials, mostly for vaccines.
He has a passion for teaching and practising patient-centered care, and developed a novel curriculum for Pediatric communication skills teaching for the medical students at Upstate.
He also dabbles in computer programming and database work, and has been a programmer-for-hire for several projects for other physicians at Upstate.
