March 5 Update: Congratulations, the current completion rate is 87 percent! The survey deadline was extended to March 5 at midnight to account for the Host Defense exam so there’s still time to leave your feedback!

MS1 students:
You are our number one priority – both your professional development and your personal well-being.
Thanks to your feedback, we’ve made improvements in the learning environment, mental health services, and mentoring and advising, among other areas. Specifically, we’ve:
  • Implemented pass/fail grading, which has enabled the class to have a greater sense of community and focus on learning
  • Provided early clinical exposure in Foundations of Clinical Practice and increased clinical correlations with foundational science concepts
  • Improved access to course evaluations by reinforcing your voice with Curriculum Council Steering Committee and the Student Course Liaison Committees as key contributors
  • Provided dedicated time to complete course evaluations, and reported real-time feedback with changes made in direct response to your comments
  • Provided 24/7 access to mental health services on all campuses
You have an opportunity to provide additional input by completing the Strategic Student Survey (S3). If 80 percent of you complete the survey by March 2, the school will contribute $2,500 directly to Second Year Show, Match Day, Senior, Banquet or Commencement costs.

Take the survey now.

More importantly, we will continue to make improvements for as long as we have your input to guide our efforts, now and in the future.
Thank you,
