Welcome to the University of Minnesota Medical School, where building, supporting and continuously improving the education of future physicians is our primary goal.
Once you have entered medical school, you have also entered the profession of medicine, where the standards of practice require the highest degree of personal responsibility for one's own learning and for learning of our peers and colleagues. Development of those characteristics begins on the first day of class and is never done, even after graduation. We are committed to ensuring that students study and learn in a supportive, caring, respectful, fair and dynamic environment so that we can help you to become wonderful physicians.
This is a large medical school with extraordinary resources for you to borrow and contribute to as you progress to becoming a doctor. This handbook connects you to essential information, resources and people to assist you through medical school.
