The Undergraduate Medical Education Program at the Cumming School of Medicine strives to:

  1. Be an innovative and progressive three-year program that educates its students to become compassionate, competent and well-rounded physicians prepared for supervised practice.
  2. Provide an environment that fosters collegiality, ethical practice and professionalism among students, faculty and allied health professionals to produce future physicians capable of working cooperatively within a team of health care providers, able to provide comprehensive, socially competent heath care to our socioculturally diverse population with a goal of social accountability to all global citizens.
  3. Facilitate the acquisition of clinical problem-solving skills through the use of clinical presentations as the foundation of its curriculum, early contact with patients and integration of basic and clinical sciences.
  4. Prepare students to remain competent throughout their career, being able to appraise new scientific medical information and thoughtfully modify their practice accordingly.
  5. Maintain an active learning environment by incorporating research opportunities, scheduled independent study time and a balance of traditional and innovative instructional modalities, including, but not limited to: small group learning, problem-based learning, interactive lectures, simulated patient encounters and bedside teaching.
  6. Communicate clear performance expectations to students through the use of outcome-based objectives assessed in an ongoing fashion with formative and summative evaluations.
  7. Provide a safe learning environment for students, an environment free of intimidation and harassment.
