Developing physician leaders

This interactive educational model reflects the college’s values and mission, which are anchored in integrated, interdisciplinary innovation. Specifically, the curriculum will focus on respect for student initiative and leadership; curricular efficiency and flexibility; close faculty member mentoring; and promoting scientific inquiry and the acquisition of new knowledge in a collaborative, interdisciplinary, and thoughtful learning environment.

The M.D. College is integrated with NSU’s Health Professions Division, which provides a unique, interdisciplinary learning environment; classrooms; laboratories; a medical library; and outpatient service clinics for eight health-related colleges, all located on a single campus.
