Using 3 words, how would you describe the Long School of Medicine? Why?

Community, Clinical, Opportunities.

Community because everyone at the school and hospital are incredibly kind, supportive, and there’s an emphasis on collaboration. Clinical because the curriculum is heavily focused on clinical experiences, even during the first two years, including the preceptor program and chances for first year students to volunteer at student faculty collaborative practice clinics. Opportunities because there are so many different options to get involved in the school and the hospital from research to political activism to community service.
