The CMSRU Leadership Team.

Welcome to the Office of Medical Education - Undergraduate Programs

Our team is excited to have the opportunity to educate physicians for the 21st century and the emerging healthcare environment.

Our curriculum arises from our mission.  We believe that medical education should be a seamless continuum over four years, integrating knowledge of basic scientific concepts, early clinical experience and patient care, self-directed learning, teamwork, and medical and non-medical activities for the greater community’s benefit.  Our students will be able to immediately apply basic scientific principles that they learn to patient care.  Our collaborative and integrated approach to teaching puts biomedical scientists and clinicians together with our students, primarily in a small group setting.  Students have ample time to reflect upon their experiences and enhance their understanding through self-directed inquiry.  Our focus on healthcare delivery, systems engineering, outcome-driven care, and cost containment are key facets of the curriculum that will enable graduates to thrive in the ever-changing world of healthcare.

We believe that the design and continued evaluation of our curriculum will foster physicians who will commit to lifelong learning and provide care that is compassionate, evidenced-based, and improves not only the health of the individual, but of the community. 

We welcome you to our school and our website, and thank you for your interest in CMSRU!
