Science of Medicine Selective

Science is the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.  The overarching goal of the Science of Medicine Selective is to enable each medical student to situate and contextualize their individual areas of clinical work within the larger world of medical research and progress.   For the purposes of the Science of Medicine Selective, we have defined  science broadly to include not only the traditional “basic sciences” such as biology, biochemistry and others, but have also included other basic disciplines such as population sciences, epidemiology, ethics, social medicine and others.  We also include other important aspects of science such and funding and publication.
