Undergraduate Medical Education (UME)

Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine recognizes the need for innovative medical education to meet the changing health care needs of individuals, our communities, and the global society. We promote a learning-centered approach that comes to life through adult learning principles of self-directed, peer-supported, and experiential inquiry and learning to fulfill our mission to advance the health of humanity through excellence in:

*Medical education – across the continuum from undergraduate, to graduate, to continuing education
*Clinical care – of individual patients as well as community public health and global health
*Research – discovery and other forms of scholarship
*Service – to our community and globally

Medical school faculty use contemporary technologies and instructional strategies that focus on problem-solving in a stimulating, team-oriented learning environment. We respect our students’ initiative for self-directed learning and maturity as they gain insights and experience to make sound decisions. We understand their need for connecting medical knowledge to real-world situations through reflection, hands-on experience, and faculty mentoring in a safe environment. We help them establish achievable development goals, and hold them accountable for their own learning.

At the medical school, learning is a shared activity that requires our students to acquire and integrate new knowledge through experiential interaction with faculty, peers, and others in a collegial and supportive atmosphere. Our team-oriented environment enables individual and group learning through inquiry-based active learning strategies including Simulation-Based Learning, Team-Based Learning, and Case-Based Learning.

Our patient and family-focused curriculum encompasses the breadth of biomedical sciences and clinical medicine—from genes to cells to individuals to society and the world—that integrates professionalism, critical thinking, evidence-based reasoning, personalized medicine, health care quality, team-based care, scholarship, active citizenship, and lifelong learning. Our graduates are prepared to excel in any chosen specialty field.

We've completed our second academic year with two classes of medical students enrolled and moving along steadily through our four-year curriculum. In August 2015, we admitted 60 medical students in the Class of 2019 to the medical school. And, the community, once again, opened its arms and hearts to welcome them and make Kalamazoo feel like home.

In May, our inaugural class started their Year 3 clerkships that take them into clinical settings throughout the community where they are learning the art of the practice of medicine from our clinical faculty, residents, fellows, other members of the healthcare team, and even from patients and their families. The collaboration and engagement with our community is key to fulfilling our mission.
