Message from the Dean

Suffering from illness carries biological, psychological and social stigma.  Successful intervention, in turn, can only be achieved by considering all these aspects.  Those aspiring to be competent physicians must acquire the ability to obtain and analyze all such information effectively.  Throughout our classes and clerkships, we emphasize the importance of being conscientious over being technically skilled.  We believe that, for students to be successful, they must have a strong desire and will to cure the suffering along with efficient communicative skills.  We will provide the students with all of the necessary opportunities to achieve this goal.
