melton,-sheree-high-res.jpgOn behalf of the faculty and staff of the Division of Student Programs, welcome to the department's website.

Our department strives to offer medical students a challenging curriculum designed to expand their horizons while also providing a safe and nurturing environment in which to grow.

We are dedicated to staying abreast in the latest in medical education so that we can provide a first-class learning experience. Our curriculum incorporates problem-based learning, evidence-based medicine, and point-of-care technologies with first-hand, service learning opportunities that provide students with the opportunity to learn by doing, while also providing world-class care to our patients.

We engage with students during every stage of their medical education and are honored to be a part of their growth as physicians.

Just as with our patients, we believe in providing “whole-person care” to our students.

Dr. Thais TonoreWe know that medical school is a very challenging time in the lives of student and their families.
