The Department of Clinical Sciences faculty are committed to the provision of high-quality, evidence-based patient care and educating the next generation of health care professionals. Our ultimate goal is to improve the health and well-being of the populations that we serve.
To that end, the faculty will provide students with a solid foundation of clinical skills and an understanding of the social determinants of health that impact patient outcomes. We collaborate with interdisciplinary teams of health care professionals, researchers and community partners to develop innovative models of care and implement solutions for gaps in quality. We are comprised of clinicians from different medical specialties who are actively engaged in the development of the curriculum. Driven by a passion to improve the future of medicine, clinical sciences faculty serve as mentors to medical students and help to guide their professional development.
