Transforming the Learner
At the University of Rochester, we know that you aren't just choosing a medical school. You’re looking for the place where you will begin your transformation.
We prepare you for the art and the science of your life’s work. We are guided by the core principle of Meliora, meaning “Ever Better.” We aspire to be a medical school of the highest order, where individuals can achieve their highest objectives, unhindered by constraints on access, creativity, or participation.
From the start of your medical education, you will get new opportunities and perspectives. From our Double Helix curriculum, which gives you early clinical experiences, to our revolutionary biopsychosocial model, helping you develop into a doctor who sees not only disease, but the complete person.
This is the beginning of your journey. Let us help you change the world through your individual path.
University statement on Supreme Court affirmative action ruling:
"...we once again affirm the University’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and we recognize that higher education and society at-large benefit from the diversity of thought that emerges from the open exchange of ideas among people from different backgrounds, identities, experiences, and beliefs."
