- Deepening the attentiveness to patients that will persist throughout students' medical careers through exposure to excellent clinical role modeling, arts and letters; and
- Developing a distinguished interdisciplinary community service learning program that focuses on ethics in action and serves as a bridge between ethics education and development of empathy and humanitarian values.
