Dear Applicant:

Welcome to our admissions web page. We hope the information in all its sections will facilitate your acquaintance with our school.

Students at the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine obtain a medical education that is consistent with modern scientific principles, supportive of strong ethical principles, sensitive to the needs of the community, and committed to excellence.

The school's educational program consists of an integrated curriculum that is permeated with clinical presentations assigned to organ-system based courses. Clinical presentations are the ways in which a patient presents to a physician. Students learn anatomy, biochemistry, physiology and other basic science concepts and content needed to understand specific clinical presentations at the time that the presentation is being addressed. This approach enhances knowledge comprehension and has been shown to improve retention of the basic sciences and to promote the acquisition of diagnostic reasoning skills that are more like those of the expert practicing physician. Because of our geographic location, during the clinical science years students are immersed in a unique and rich variety of clinical patient-care learning experiences, that include not only traditional medicine, but also international, bi-national, bicultural, and border health medicine.

Thank you for your interest in our school. We look forward to considering your application.

Sincerely,

Manuel Schydlower, MD, FAAP, FSAHM

Associate Dean for Admissions
