The University of Mississippi School of Medicine trains physicians to deliver skilled, equitable health care to all citizens of Mississippi, the region and nation; this is the essential goal of the medical school.
The program is accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education.
Along the way, students who complete the four-year course of study leading to the Doctor of Medicine degree absorb the schools core values, including respect for the range of diversity reflected in all people.
The School of Medicines pledge is to educate physicians who are compassionate and considerate, and whose numbers meet the health care needs of the state, including those of the underserved. These professionals are mindful of the health problems and disparities faced by the people of Mississippi. They understand that medical education is a lifelong commitment.
As part of the states only academic health science campus, the school plays an important role in deepening the body of knowledge in medicine and science for the state, nation and world, and in making health care more available and valuable for patients of various backgrounds.
Appreciation and respect for the traditions, customs and cultures of a diverse state is a must if the schools students, faculty, administration and staff are to fulfill the schools mission. This diversity embraces demographic attributes, personal attributes, varied life experiences, and much more.
Diversity and inclusion enrich the learning environment and better prepare physicians to offer quality care to everyone.
