COMPREHENSIVE PHYSICIAN TRAINING FOR EFFECTIVE PATIENT CARE
Welcome to the Windsor University School of Medicine. Medical education is undergoing a significant transformation. This institution strives to position itself at the forefront of these challenges.
As the Dean of Academics, and on behalf of the faculty, staff, administration, and fellow students it is with great pleasure that I welcome you.
Windsor offers an innovative curriculum, addressing the academic requirements of physicians for future medical practice.
The medical program utilizes a competency-based curriculum, focusing on best practices in patient care, delivered through innovative teaching strategies; digital classroom; an advanced simulation center, comprehensive library, and streamlined courses ensuring a seamless transition from basic to clinical science applications.
Students begin to learn clinical skills in their first semester, informed by evidence-based patient care and treatment. A parallel research course takes our students’ medical knowledge to an advanced stage for clinical efficacy in eventual practice. The faculty are committed and dedicated to the teaching process by constantly improving. Our educators attend conferences in their respective subjects, as well as remain current on effective principles of medical education. This institution is continuously working toward providing an optimal learning environment founded on these guiding principles: to constantly improve our understanding and application of medical knowledge; to remain innovative, both in our curriculum and teaching practices; to inspire, our students to be passionate about providing their patients with the best possible course of treatment, care, and wellness.
The Windsor organization continues with sustained effort, enthusiasm, sincerity, and motivation to address the needs of current and future medical practice. We invite you to join us, as we move forward on this exciting journey of student-centered medical education for patient-centered health care. This is an excellent time to prepare for a career in medicine given the advances in curriculum design, learning theory, and technologically assisted information acquisition, evidence-based practice, analyses, and dissemination. This school has taken their understanding and commitment to educating future physicians by integrating innovative strategies in medical training with that of current proven advances in technology. This commitment is demonstrated by the on-site, brand new state of the art simulation center, including a virtual clinic, SimMan, Anatomy software for virtual dissection, and Imaging software for cross-sectional analyses, as well as case-based digital teaching modalities. Through this institution wide effort, we are proud that our curriculum ensures continuity between the foundational sciences provided by our horizontally and vertically integrated basic and clinical sciences. This flow is further reinforced by our Introduction to Clinical Medicine courses.
We are indeed addressing the needs of the next generation of physicians, who will utilize data at their disposal to provide optimal bedside care as they encourage wellness and prevention. The future is bright for the Windsor organization, and we invite you to join in this exciting transformation.
