Student Success

A Curriculum Designed for Success V COM’s carefully curated block-style curriculum explores each body system to highlight the core areas of medicine. Students are introduced to and led through clinical experiences by faculty. Through hands-on training, students develop valuable communication skills by engaging with the communities they will impact. In the third year, students move through 10 core clinical rotations at College-affiliated hospitals and practices. This gives them a close-up look at the inner workings of medical practices.
