College within the College

An approach to health that aims to improve the health of an entire population. Our Program seeks to step beyond the individual-level focus of mainstream medicine by addressing a broad range of factors that impact health on a population level.

Our Program seeks to foster creative thinking in medical students in order to help them develop novel and innovative approaches to challenges in healthcare delivery, research and education. 

The body of knowledge specific to research is not fully covered in the regular medical curriculum. Our Program is designed to help students become effective researchers in a systematic fashion.

The Humanities track offers students an opportunity to pursue a self-directed course of creative practice and research within the arts and humanities in parallel with their medical education.
