Our mission is to provide experiences that will prepare our students to graduate as agile and flexible physicians that have the skills necessary to thrive in a rapidly evolving healthcare environment.
Applied Anatomy Track
The focus of the track will be educating students about the various facets of surgical practice, procedures-based medicine and proper technique common to interventional medical practice.
Biomedical & Clinical Research Track
Students acquire skills necessary to conduct scientific studies and participate in laboratory, clinical or osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) research projects under a mentor of their choice.
H-art of Medicine Track
The H-art of Medicine Longitudinal Track explores the arts as a tool for healing both for restoration of self-well-being, and as potential tools future practitioners can use to help their patients achieve better health by focusing on the whole person of body, soul, and spirit.
Business in Medicine Track
The Business in Medicine track will introduce students to the business skills necessary to understand healthcare delivery systems, lead multi-disciplinary teams and apply data analytics.
Health, Justice & Equity Track
The Health, Justice & Equity Track provides students the opportunity to further explore diversity, equity, and inclusion in healthcare and how health outcomes from different cultures and communities are affected from lack of representation and policies that properly and adequately address their disparities. This track will create culturally humble advocates for underrepresented and underserved communities, empowering students to be leaders in health justice and equity to improve health outcomes in historically minoritized/marginalized communities.
iSquad is a safe space for students to disrupt, invent, innovate, learn design thinking skills, and to fail forward. iSquad was started by students and is student-led and run, with guidance from a faculty director. We encourage collaboration, student-centered learning and critical thinking. Our focus is on medical technology, device development and their application to the practice of medicine and healthcare delivery. The most innovative piece of iSquad is allowing students to ultimately shape what the group will become by being given the opportunity to become student directors in their second year of the curriculum. All WesternU Colleges are welcome and encouraged to attend our events. Medical technology knows no boundaries.
