Our Longitudinal Academic Tracks allow students to explore various areas of interest in conjunction with the four-year medical school curriculum.  All tracks are faculty-run, scholarly experiences for medical students interested in developing attitudes and skills for self-directed, lifelong learning and career development.

The goals of the Longitudinal Academic Tracks are to promote intellectual curiosity, appreciation of scholarly inquiry, inter-professional collaboration, and cura personalis.

There are currently five Longitudinal Academic Tracks offered in the School of Medicine:

  • Health Justice Scholar Track
  • Literature and Medicine Track
  • Medical Education Research Scholar Track
  • Population Health Scholar Track
  • Healthcare Leadership Track 

Interested students may apply in the first year of medical school. Students who successfully complete a track by meeting all track requirements and remaining in good academic standing, graduate from the medical school with distinction.
