In 1952, the School of Medicine at CWRU (then known as Western Reserve University) implemented the innovative curriculum widely credited with initiating changes in medical education throughout the country and around the world. Our education program continues to receive accolades; in 2002, the School of Medicine became only the third institution in history to receive the best review possible by the authority that grants accreditation to U.S. and Canadian medical degree programs, the Liaison Committee on Medical Education
Today, applicants can choose from three distinct paths or tracks to obtain a medical degree at the School of Medicine. Each program offers a unique approach to teach you the tenets and skills of medicine. Some of the collective attributes of the programs include:
The University Track (4 year MD) is our oldest and largest MD program. It is designed to train well-rounded physicians built on four cornerstones of clinical mastery, research and scholarship, leadership, and civic professionalism.
Often referred to as the College Track (5 year MD), is a research focused curriculum that prepares students for careers as physician-investigators. Students graduate with an MD with special qualifications in biomedical research.
This is our MD/PhD Track that can take up to 8 years to complete. This program develops physician-scientists who bridge the gap between basic science and clinical research.
