Program Curriculum

Collaborative Life Sciences Building

The goal of the School of Medicine curriculum is to balance emphasis on the scientific basis of medicine with early clinical experience; offer progressive patient care responsibilities for students; and permit students to individualize their educational programs as well as to enhance their independent learning and problem solving skills. The sciences basic to medicine are presented in an interdisciplinary format focusing initially on the scientific principles of medicine and ultimately progressing to disease processes and the clinical management and care of patients.

Embracing innovative teaching methods, our curriculum emphasizes the development of knowledge, skills, and behaviors most needed by 21st-century physicians, including interprofessional teamwork and communication, data interpretation, use of information technology and quality science.
