Our innovative curriculum combines individual attention, interdisciplinary learning experiences, extraordinary hands-on experience and an emphasis on evidence-based and patient-centered practice.
During the first two years, the curriculum is organized around integrated system blocks, providing students with a 360-degree view of each organ system through the lenses of three courses: Foundations of Medicine, Clinical Arts and Sciences, and Scholarly Reflection and Concentration Capstone.
A highlight of the curriculum is the Medical Student Home (MeSH) program, a longitudinal, mentored clinical experience that begins early in the first year. The experience is a “practical laboratory” for students to work with patients and feel the pulse of a real community practice. There are few first-year opportunities like it anywhere else.
Throughout all four years, you will gain substantial clinical experience and work with faculty mentors. Our clinical partners provide an extraordinarily wide range of settings where you can interact with patients and complete electives — all designed to allow you to explore your options and passions for the type of medicine you want to practice.
