To do so the Program (1) recruits a diverse population of students with the ability to succeed; (2) seeks faculty with varied backgrounds who are committed to excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service; (3) organizes the curriculum around a set of competencies that stress life-long learning; (4) emphasizes interprofessional education opportunities with learners and practitioners from multiple disciplines; and (5) stresses the practical application of knowledge. The Program is set in an academic medical center in a major metropolitan area to facilitate interprofessional and experiential learning.
