Students at microscopes

Preparing physicians for careers in the 21st century.

We provide faculty support with curriculum design, instructional assistance, teaching skills, learner assessment and program evaluations. We support the functions and actions of the Medical Education Committee and ensure our educational program meets standards set by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME).

More Information

  • Our students follow a three pillar schedule that includes foundational courses, longitudinal integrated clerkship, and physician scholar segments.

  • We're focused on building student competency in patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism and systems-based practice.

  • Our Scholarship Pathways program provides an elective opportunity to enrich the medical school experience. Students choose one of three paths based on their interests in academic medicine, clinical or basic science research or community service and leadership development.
