Undergraduate Medical Education

The four Undergraduate Medical Education (UME) offices work collaboratively to successfully steward our medical students from application to graduation. We provide an inclusive learning environment that develops leaders in medicine who strive to improve the health and well-being of patients and communities through high-quality and equitable patient care, research, education, and engagement in a culturally relevant and socially responsible manner.

UME faculty works with our students in UMSOM’s nationally and internationally known programs, institutes, and research centers including:
