Boston University has adopted a new integrated and inclusive view – academically, socially and culturally. This new view, the One BU philosophy, aims to connect Boston University’s large student and faculty bodies on several planes by encouraging integrated and collaborative efforts across all BU colleges, departments, and programs. The One BU philosophy is focused primarily on collaboration throughout BU in order to eliminate disconnected pockets of activity created by administrative and cultural barriers.  In addition, One BU strives to extend this ideal of connectivity to Boston and the greater Boston area.

The Department of Graduate Medical Sciences is mobilizing its students, faculty and staff to achieve this goal though the integration of two new programs.
