SOM At A Glance: our dynamic integrated curriculum graduates exceptional, self-directed and compassionate physician leaders dedicated to the health and wellness of all people and communities. SOM’s newly redesigned Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) program curriculum ensures that students gain both theoretical knowledge and practical skills, and can respond and relate to patients with equal parts competence and compassion. Students receive early clinical skills training at our Clinical Skills and Simulation Center, through clinical preceptorships, supervised shadowing programs and through community service and service-learning programs at our expansive network of diverse affiliated clinical sites. The training that our students receive incorporates the health systems sciences and social determinants of health so that our students understand the many factors that impact the health of the communities that they serve.
The SOM provides outstanding opportunities for student career and professional development with research opportunities in education, basic translational, clinical and/or outcomes-based research. The SOM Dean’s Office provides stipends and infrastructure with support from the Assistant Dean of Medical Student Research. Approximately 100 students participate annually in the Medical Student Research Forum, which provides a platform for showcasing student research achievements on campus and beyond.
