Mission Statement

Beyond the important objective of training physicians who are scholars of human biology, the School of Medicine strives to graduate physicians who manifest in their personal and professional lives an appreciation of humanistic medicine. We regard humanistic medicine as a constellation of ethical and professional attitudes, which affect the physician’s interactions with patients, colleagues, and society. Among these attitudes are concern for the sanctity of human life; commitment to dignity and respect in the provision of medical care to all patients; devotion to social justice, especially regarding inequities in the availability of health care; humility and awareness of medicine’s limitations in the care of the sick; appreciation of the role of non-medical factors in a patient’s state of well-being or illness; and mature, well-balanced professional behavior that derives from comfortable relationships with members of the human family and one’s Creator.
