The Personal Side of Health Care
We have been educating physician leaders who have distinguished themselves in their profession for more than a century. Our students experience a variety of clinical environments and models. These include inner-city hospitals that help the underserved, the Federal Health Care Center that provides medical care to U.S. military personnel, and private clinics and practice settings.
We teach that patients are the center of the model of care, and also an active member of the healthcare team. Our students learn that outcomes improve through positive patient interactions and clear communication. During their didactic training, our students sharpen those interactions, along with their critical reasoning and communication skills, in our simulation labs. Additionally, our students have early clinical contact, experience a supportive environment and can count on faculty committed to student success.
