Transforming Medical Education

Preparing the Next Generation of Doctors

This is not your parents' medical school. As the science of medicine becomes ever more complex, changes are coming to the classroom. In addition to becoming compassionate caregivers, medical students must learn to evaluate data, understand sophisticated reports, and be aware of emerging technologies. At UVA, medical students utilize new educational tools and develop advanced clinical skills before they ever have to use them in private practice.
