Education

At the Tufts University School of Medicine, we’re preparing students to succeed in a range of important health care disciplines. At the heart of our programs is a rigorous curriculum taught by highly respected researchers, physicians, and public health practitioners who sit at the top of their fields. Students build their skills in the research lab, anatomy lab, and the clinical simulation center, and have the opportunity to focus their interest and passion in a range of different settings and disciplines – from domestic and international fieldwork, to primary care in major cities, to rural medicine.
