Personal and Professional Development

The Personal and Professional Development course (PPD) spans across years 3 and 4 to prepare students for their upcoming adjacent clerkships, residency preparedness, and career development. Each PPD week includes synchronous and asynchronous sessions along with dedicated focus time for wellness. 

Scholarly Project Year 1-4

During the Scholarly Project course, which spans the entire four years of study, students learn about medical information literacy, life-long learning, teamwork, effective communication, research methods, evidence-based medicine approaches and ethics related to scholarly inquiry. Each of these topics will be explored in depth as the student completes an individual hypothesis-driven research project over the course of this four-year experience.

A wide variety of electives are provided through Phoenix-area and out-of-state hospitals, medical centers and private practices.
