Learning communities meet once or twice a month for the “Clinical Reflections” course series, which addresses professional acculturation and clinical applications of the curriculum. Each student meets one-on-one with his or her mentor twice a year. Students shadow their mentors and other physicians in clinical settings.
A student-led “Field Day” in the first week of school, along with other activities throughout the year, features House teams. Beginning with Field Day, Houses vie in a year-long competition with academic, athletic, social, wellness, and community engagement components to win a House Cup. Each community holds several social gatherings per year.
