Medical students practice clinical skills


Higher Learning

Prepare to lead as a valuable member of a team no matter where you serve.

You are part of the change that drives your learning. We continuously and strategically review, update and enhance what and how we teach with student input at every stage.

Amassing essential foundational knowledge is balanced with the art of being a physician, leader and collaborator. Skills are taught and developed in the context of how they will be practically applied as you launch your career and make an impact while you train. Along the way, you'll provide invaluable insight and feedback that help improve the process.

The result: a dynamic and evolving curriculum delivered in a supportive, collegial environment with responsive faculty and dedicated time to explore your passions.

Change is afoot across the entire profession. That may be daunting. It may be thought provoking. But it’s also exciting. Being in an environment where change is happening is really important for your future training.
