Dr. Kiran C. Patel

Work in Teams to Solve Complex Cases

Demographic shifts, shortages, and cost reductions are changing medicine and our national health care system. There’s only one way to prepare future physicians to navigate these challenges: adopt innovative approaches to medical education.

At Nova Southeastern University's Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Allopathic Medicine (NSU MD), we have redefined medical education. Our innovative approach places the patient at the center of the learning process, using real-world cases and problems as a major vehicle for learning.

NSU MD offers small team-learning, personal mentoring, a large, diverse metropolis, and award-winning hospitals and specialty practices. Each day, NSU MD students tackle complex cases in tight-knit teams. Learn to think critically, diagnose effectively, and treat patients as the center of every case.
