Summary of Purpose

The goal of the faculty is to train the next generation of doctors to be superb physicians whom we would welcome as colleagues in the care of our patients, our families, and ourselves. The MEC holds the responsibility to ensure that our medical school curriculum develops and offers a curriculum to train future physicians who are highly knowledgeable; clinically skilled; professional and caring; excellent communicators; committed to lifelong learning and continuous assessment and improvement in all that they do; and skilled at practicing within a complex healthcare environment. Our graduates enter many different areas of healthcare practice, teaching, or research, but we expect all our graduates to have the knowledge, skills, and commitment necessary for them to excel at and improve their chosen areas of healthcare.
