Longitudinal Academic Tracks
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 eight Longitudinal Academic Tracks offered in the School of Medicine:
- Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in Medicine Track
- Health Justice Scholar Track
- Healthcare Leadership Track
- Literature and Medicine Track
- Medical Education Research Scholar Track
- Population Health Scholar Track
- Primary Care Leadership Track
- Environmental Health and Medicine Track
Interested students may apply during first year of medical school. Students who successfully complete a track by meeting all track requirements and in good academic standing, graduate from the medical school with distinction.
Students may apply to up to two academic tracks. The track application becomes available to students in late Fall of their first year.
