MMS 5501: Foundations

Credits 2

This course provides the basis for a successful Master of Medical Sciences (MMS) program experience using teambuilding, interpersonal interaction, reflective practice, critical listening and reading, community engagement, and hands-on skills practice. These foundational principles are critical to future health professional education. Week one includes activities centered on belonging, growth mindset, problem- and team-based learning, wellness, and resiliency. Week two emulates the format of the MMS program and preclinical curriculum with student-directed learning prior to engaged learning sessions (e.g., labs, team-based learning, etc.).
