Educational Programs

Welcome Message from Dr. Margaret Burnett,
Associate Head, Academic

Excellence in teaching and learning is the driving force of our academic mission.  A career in Medicine requires a lifelong commitment to the acquisition and application of knowledge for the benefit of our patients.  Our department strives to facilitate a high-quality clinical learning experience for the undergraduate students, residents and fellows as well as for practicing physicians.  Our curricula are designed to foster empathy, resilience and professionalism in addition to skill development. Mentorship, collegiality and teamwork support the essential principle of lifelong learning.  The opportunity to teach others is a privilege that reminds us of why we chose to practice medicine in the first place.

    traditions of the medical profession.
  • My colleagues will be my brothers and sisters.
