About School of Medicine

Tufts University School of Medicine prepares students to become skilled, passionate health care providers and researchers that make a difference in the world. Our graduates continue on to top-tier residencies or take leadership roles at prestigious organizations around the country. They segue into dynamic, fulfilling careers that improve lives and tackle some of medicine’s toughest challenges.

Classroom learning meets real world experience.

Our programs are led by deeply-experienced faculty who combine rigorous classroom instruction with mentorship and access to extensive professional networks. As a Tufts student, you’ll hone your skills at our 15,000 square foot Clinical Skills and Medical Simulation Center, our world-class anatomy lab, and other research facilities located across our downtown Boston Health Sciences Campus. 

Students rotate at a range of clinical sites – from major trauma centers, to suburban health centers, to rural clinics. They conduct international fieldwork in Africa, India, and Latin America, and collaborate on important research at labs both inside and outside Tufts. They’re exposed to diverse communities, settings, and populations, which means a broader perspective and richer learning experience.

Compassionate. Service driven. 

We offer a world of opportunities to serve the community while studying at Tufts. Our students create and lead mission-driven organizations and projects, and volunteer with community groups in and around Boston. They teach high school and junior high school students interested in medicine, and make global impact through meaningful international work. However it is that they choose to engage, they are united by a desire to make a lasting contribution toward improving health.  

Ready for what’s next.

Our students graduate with a strong academic foundation, clinical skills build on years of experience, and the unique perspective that comes from working in a range of different settings. You’ll find our graduates serving a range of different populations – in a variety of different settings – as primary care physicians, specialists, and researchers. Whatever their path, they are committed to doing important work that makes a difference by improving health.
