The School of Medicine is dedicated to intellectual, personal, and professional growth in the broadest sense. We pride ourselves on a student body made up of the nation's most talented people, chosen not only for their academic prowess, but also for their diverse backgrounds, character, and committment to serving the medical needs of others.
Students at the School of Medicine, on average, perform consistently higher on the United States Medical Licensing Examinations (USMLE) when compared to the national average consisting of all US and Canadian medical schools.
For USMLE Step 1 which is taken after the second year of medical school: 96% of Case students pass on the first attempt compared to the national average of 93%. Our school's average for the most recent three years is Mean (StdDev) = 230 (21) compared to the national average of 221 (23).
Since the implementation of the WR2 curriculum, students in the Classes of 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 have scored well about the national average.
In recent years, the gap between our students' Step 1 scores and the national average has been widening.
The USMLE Step 2 CK and CS exams are typically taken in the months following the completion of the third year.
Residency Match Results: Historically, CWRU students do extremely well in the Match. The national board no longer offically tracks 1st choice matches versus other choices. However, our students have consistently been thrilled with their Match results and train in outstanding residency programs locally and across the country.
