Center for Teaching and Learning

Our doors are always open - before you even have your first class! We recognize that medical education requires stamina and acute studying skills, so one of our biggest priorities is to help students identify their best strategies for approaching and learning material. This is something that we emphasize and work on through individual sessions with each student during their education at SOM.

Throughout your time here, you may visit us for a variety of reasons, including:
