Advancing Human Health
Medical education, health care and biomedical research are undergoing dramatic changes right before our eyes. Demographic shifts, workforce shortages and new policies seeking to reduce health care costs will fundamentally impact the future of academic medicine and the entire U.S. health care system.
So, how can we address these fundamental challenges and prepare the next generation of physicians to meet the challenges of 21st century health and medicine?
While building a new medical school ‘from the bottom up’ seems like an overwhelming task, it also represents an exciting opportunity to get it right from the start and create a new brand of a medical college that can adequately train the nation’s next generation of doctors.
NSU’s College of Allopathic Medicine is pursuing accreditation by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) to become the 8th M.D.-degree awarding medical school in Florida. In line with LCME standards, the College is striving for excellence in medical education, research, and patient care using quality leadership and evidence-based medicine principles. Innovation and leadership are the core qualities that we seek most in our faculty, our administrators, and everyone else who wishes to make contributions to our emerging medical school.
At NSU, we are uniquely equipped with the resources, know-how and facilities that integrate educational, research, and clinical facilities into an inclusive, respectful, and robust learning environment. In accordance with a specific timeline, I have brought together expert faculty members from various professional backgrounds to develop a foundational curriculum that will integrate foundational science components with clinical medicine like never before. This curriculum is designed to promote the retention of new knowledge and acquisition of skills through repetitive and progressive linkage of scientific concepts with their respective clinical applications.
To become an exemplary, 21st-century medical college recognized for excellence in education, research, and clinical care
