The School of Medicine should serve as a technical resource in the development of health care policy in the state and provide extension and research initiatives to improve the health care of the citizens of the state.

he education of a physician encompasses the following components: a preparatory phase in college: a rigorous professional education leading to the M.D. degree; post-graduate or residency training; and lifelong continuing education after the conclusion of formal training. Unlike most other professions, medicine awards its degree partway through the educational process and the degree certifies that the individual has acquired a broad base of knowledge and skills requisite for the practice of medicine.

Medical education requires that the accumulation of scientific knowledge be accompanied by the simultaneous acquisition of skills and professional attitudes and behavior. It is in the care of patients that the physician learns the application of scientific knowledge and skills. It is impossible to consider medical education without considering the impact on patients who are an integral part of the educational process.
