EMET Highlight: Preventive Medicine

Enhanced Medical Education Tracks are in-depth areas of study developed to enhance the required medical school curriculum.  The tracks are challenging and address specific topics in more detail than what is provided during the required curriculum.

The goal of the Preventive Medicine track is to develop skills in providing preventive care to the individual and to a population.  Specifically, students will work to perform prevention-focused clinical skills, identify risk factors and interventions for clinical preventive services, and effectively use resources related to prevention and public health.

Specific activities where students will hone these skills include clinics and seminars, a summer course in clinical preventive medicine, electives in preventive medicine and public health, and a project that includes extensive research and consideration of a specific topic in preventive medicine.
