Curriculum

Building on a Tradition of Excellence

Our curriculum, launched in 2015, embraces the proud traditions of our past while keeping an eye towards the future. Eight Overarching Goals and Six Guiding Principles form the foundation of the curriculum. You will see that these goals focus on areas essential for students to become successful future leaders in medicine. In addition, our Guiding Principles ensure that the new curriculum is built upon the principles and values of the Yale System of Education, including respect for student initiative and maturity, curricular flexibility, close faculty mentoring and a required thesis to promote scientific inquiry, all hallmarks of our unique learning environment.
