Welcome to Curriculum 2.0

Our one-of-a-kind MD curriculum prepares you to become a leader and life-long learner in a rapidly evolving health care system.


Take the lead on your own medical training

With our unique 13-month preclinical curriculum, you’ll jump into clerkships right away in Year 2, leaving plenty of time in Years 3 and 4 to choose clinical experiences and electives based on your career interests.

Whether you feel 100% certain about your future career or you’re open to all specialty options, Curriculum 2.0 will give you the time and space to follow the same curiosity that brought you to medicine in the first place.

Join a community of change-makers

Health equity and systems innovation are cornerstones of Curriculum 2.0. You don’t have to wait to get your degree before changing the health care system for the better. VUSM students and faculty make this a priority every day, both in and out of the classroom.

Learn within a community like no other

Through innovative small-group learning, flipped classrooms, and immersive clinical experiences, you’ll focus on conceptual understandings and practical applications from day one. What’s more, a wide network of physician mentors and academic support prepares you to make the best possible differential diagnoses and treatments for your future patients.
