Medical Doctor from Thomas Jefferson University curriculum prepares future doctors to learn actively and think critically as they develop core professional competencies to prepare them to make positive, impactful changes on healthcare. 


Medical Doctor from Thomas Jefferson University is patient-centered. In every case study and clinical encounter, you will be asked to consider “What are this patient’s goals?” (not just, “What needs fixing?”). In another noteworthy feature, JeffMD integrates clinical experience, science instruction, and development of a professional persona - how you will interact with clients and peers - throughout the four years of medical school. JeffMD also allows you to customize your studies more than a traditional curriculum does: You will be encouraged to declare a specialty interest before the last phase of the curriculum so you can complete work on your core competencies in the context of that specialty.
