The School of Medicine offers a one-of-a-kind educational experience, tailored to students’ learning preferences with the patient as the priority. Not everything a student needs to know can be taught in several weeks or even a semester. Years of intentional focus can establish competency and effective tools to explore the depth and understanding of life-long learning, the complexities of the modern health care system, and effective communication and patient care skills. In addition to longitudinal experiences and one-on-one mentoring, students will benefit from these distinctive building blocks:
- Team-based Student Support – We know physicians work in teams to deliver quality care, so why shouldn’t they work in teams during medical school?
- Distributed Clinical Sites – We want students to go where the patients are, rather than wait for them to be admitted to the hospital. We will train students in many disciplines and settings, with a focus on ambulatory care.
