Curriculum

We do more than train physicians. We train healthcare leaders.

We have designed our curriculum to offer superior clinical training, with comprehensive, evidence-based education in all of the core Family Medicine rotations and strong longitudinal experiences in Community Medicine, Integrative Medicine, Leadership, and Research & Scholarly Activity. Our innovative curriculum and schedule maximizes learning on every rotation. Didactics are a strong component of the curriculum, and we utilize simulation, mobile technology (such as “Telederm”), and other innovative tools to continuously learn, teach, and provide the best care.
