The Office of the Dean is responsible for the educational and research operations of the of the School of Medicine
More than 1,200 full time Medical School faculty provide educational programs for 1,700 MD, and graduate students, and care for diverse population of patients at Boston Medical Center as well as other surrounding hospitals and clinics. Faculty students and staff competed successfully for hundreds of millions of research dollars.
Our core mission is training the next generation of physicians and scientists. Health sciences education has changed substantially. Although computerization facilitates learning, more information exists to be mastered. Boston University provides today’s health sciences students with distinguished and committed faculty, thoughtful and humanistic mentoring, state-of-the-art learning facilities, and clinical experiences in one of New England’s most respected teaching hospitals and in other locations in the Boston area and internationally. We remain committed to providing the doctors and scientists with an outstanding education in both the art and science medicine.
The campus has a mission of service to its community as well as a well-established Global Health Initiative. We have the largest trauma center in New England. We have outstanding research programs in cardiology, cancer, neurosciences, and infectious diseases. Faculty and students run a medical clinic that serves refugees from war-torn countries. Many other programs and opportunities provide a network of opportunities for medical and health sciences students.
