Pathways of Emphasis
The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine now offers pathways of emphasis in Ethics & Humanities, Genetics/Genomics, Health Law, Immunologic Medicine/Infectious Diseases, Molecular Medicine and Social Medicine. These pathways provide structured learning opportunities throughout all four years of the curriculum in the form of didactic sessions, required coursework, research under the direction of faculty mentors, experiential learning, professional development through participation in organizations, societies and scientific meetings, and self-directed learning activities, both conventional and web-based. Students apply for selection into these pathways in the fall of the first year. Other pathways of emphasis are being developed in Medical Education, Medical Informatics, and Translational Medicine.
