Let's Change the Future of Health Care Together


It’s no secret that aging populations and evolving medical needs are changing the way our nation delivers and receives health care. Yet, adapting to the new reality can be difficult for many medical schools steeped in decades of established traditions and training methodologies.

At NSU, we have the benefit of starting something new and unencumbered. At NSU, our M.D. program is designed to navigate today’s biggest health care challenges. We offer students a rare and exciting opportunity to be a part of a new model of teaching and practicing medicine.

Our students don’t just memorize physiology, anatomy or the history of medicine. They experience how these elements are interwoven using clinical cases and a team-based approach designed to help them truly understand the material and its context in patient care. Through this pedagogy, our students are able to master a patient-first philosophy of care; communication and leadership; and the business side of the profession. We are here to educate innovative leaders.

I’m very excited to work alongside each of you: our current and prospective NSU students, professors, staff members, supporters and partners. We will navigate this extraordinary journey together. Welcome to NSU MD.
