At the University of Missouri School of Medicine, students learn in an educational environment in which the health of our patients is our first priority and improving care is a routine part of providing care.

Learning experiences model commitment to the patient as the first priority and always include respect for patients’ needs and preferences. Learning methods are based on problems, situated in actual clinical contexts to foster skills in self-directed and lifelong learning.

Medical Student Affairs Council (MSAC) - Student Interest Groups

The School of Medicine has several student interest groups that current medical student can join. Each interest group will have student leadership and faculty advisor contacts. You can obtain information about the current student organizations during M1 Orientation or you may contact the MSAC president for more information. The Associate Dean of Student Affairs oversees the MSAC committee as well as all student organizations.

Student Wellness

Student wellness promotes the health and well-being of our medical students physically, mentally and emotionally. We empower students to make healthy lifestyle choices that include physical activity, stress management, good nutrition, and positive social activities. We seek to equip all medical students with the tools they need to establish healthy habits and manage the various stressors of medical school. We are committed to addressing the unique needs of the diverse student population and encourage them to take control of their own lifelong wellness.
