Foundational Training

The Practice of Medicine program provides broad clinical science education in the first two years with early exposure to patient care and the practice of medicine. The program employs a variety of instructional methods to equip students with the critical thinking and communication skills essential   to providing compassionate, expert care. These include clinical problem-based cases, videotaped simulations with standardized patients and computer-based instruction.

 

Early Hands-On Experience

In addition to early patient exposure through the Practice of Medicine program, The Clinic at the campus provide a remarkable opportunity to gain hands-on experience beginning in the preclinical years.  By volunteering at the clinics, students acquire basic clinical skills and learn how to work closely with one of the most diverse populations in the country.

 

Broad Clinical Exposure

Through an extensive schedule of clerkships, students learn how to work closely with one of the most diverse populations in the country, while gaining exposure to a range of chronic and acute conditions under the mentorship of leading experts. Participating hospitals including locations in Denver   , Atlanta , Miami , and Chicago

 

Global & Community Health

Hands-on experiences in local communities and abroad allow our trainees to develop expertise in international and community-based medicine while addressing the needs of undeserved populations. WUHS  works to reduce health disparities in our local community and worldwide. Recognizing that many global health problems stem from economic, social, environmental, political, and health care inequalities

My love affair with medicine dates back as far as I can remember. So for me, attending a school that could boast the academic resources I need; and also, be located in the Caribbean was a no brainer.
