USF Health MD & You
The Morsani College of Medicine offers two parallel programs that give you a choice of emphasis and geographical focus.
The CORE program is based in Tampa for four years and features a strong preclinical integrated curriculum with small group and engaged learning emphasis, integrated clerkships, and year 4 career tracks that prepare you for the residency of your choice. The Scholarly Concentration Program option allows you to focus and develop yourself in an area of interest outside the normal curriculum in fields such as Health Care Disparities, Engineering, Business, and Medical Education.
The SELECT program is based in Tampa (2 years) and Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania (2 years). It has the same integrated curriculum focus as the CORE program, but also offers additional training in Leadership, Health Systems, and Values-Centered Patient Care, all important domains for developing medical leadership. This increased emphasis on leadership (in one on one coaching, small groups, seminars) is a focused alternative to the Scholarly Concentration program for students who want to focus on developing their medical leadership skills.
