At the Office of Medical Education, we dedicate ourselves to facilitating high-quality, evidence-based and learner-centered training to students, to enable them to learn the art and science of medicine, so they can become outstanding future physicians and health providers.

We accomplish this through:

  • designing, organizing, monitoring, and evaluating an integrated curriculum;
  • supporting faculty, staff and students in the process of teaching and learning;
  • fostering a safe and effective learning environment in our community;
  • maintaining up-to-date and appropriate facilities and resources for education;
  • assessing learner/program outcomes through research and continuous quality improvement.
