Introduction to House and Learning Communities Program

The Chicago Medical School (CMS) at Rosalind Franklin University established a House and Learning Communities Program to facilitate the development of students in a collaborative cultural context.  The program includes four Houses that link sixteen learning communities across the four years of medical school, connecting students in a network of faculty and fellow students with varying interests and levels of experience.


  • Provide medical students a familiar cohort for the duration of their medical school experience
  • Facilitate the development of trust and collaboration among the medical student body.
  • Support student efforts to adapt to and succeed in the culture of medicine in general and medical education in particular.
  • Provide students with a broad range of resources for learning, advising, support, teamwork, and community engagement.
