Ambulatory care experience

Medical students gain immediate access to the continuity of patient care.


Our community-based medical education is enhanced by a full-time core faculty and a much larger number of community physicians who actively seek to include students in their activities and share their concerns for social and healthcare issues. Faculty and administration work closely with students, offering personal guidance and assistance.

Research opportunities
Faculty members frequently offer students opportunities to become involved in basic and/or clinical research. Such projects may culminate in publication in professional journals. In recent years, several students have received national recognition for their work.

Community service

Students engage in various community projects, developing an informal network of service opportunities that complement their formal education. M2s are required to complete an Introduction to Community Medicine Project as part of their Pathophysiology of Medicine course.

The Graduation competencies are a unified set of objectives that span all four campuses. This link will redirect you to the main College of Medicine education pages.
