College of Medicine: Curriculum


Students in class

The primary goal of the College of Medicine is to graduate excellent physicians. Whether the student's ultimate goal is general or specialty practice, research, medical administration or academic medicine, the College provides a comprehensive educational experience for all students.

The educational objectives of the curriculum are intended to provide students with the basics that they will need to embark upon graduate medical education in the field of their choice, and ultimately to become competent and compassionate physicians. To achieve these objectives, the College has set standards of knowledge and develops the skills and attitudes necessary to enable students to reach their goals. Team based learning and interactive lectures enhance the learning experience during the first two years.
