About the Andrew B. Kaufman WMP

Pathway Mission

The Andrew B. Kaufman World Medicine Pathway (WMP) will provide a strong foundation to prepare medical students for advanced training and careers that address global health challenges.

Pathway Vision

The Andrew B. Kaufman World Medicine Pathway will prepare medical students for advanced training and careers that address global health challenges. A foundational curriculum during the pre-clerkship years will focus on building knowledge, skills, and attitudes through a series of expert-led seminars, simulations, and other unique experiences. Students will then have a mentored experience in the clinical years focused on biomedical research, clinical care, capacity building, or global health policy/advocacy, which will include international elective time with funding support. 

Pathway FAQs

A Pathway is a supplemental program that provides enriching experiences for students with interests beyond the core medical school curriculum. Students that complete the pathway receive a certificate as well as designation on the CWRU SOM transcript and the Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE).

Please watch the video below for more information on this and other Pathways!

First-year medical students (both University and College Program) who are not currently enrolled in a dual-degree program or another Pathway may submit their application.

Please see our Apply to the Pathway page for further information. Students should submit their application, including a CV and personal statement, by email to both faculty leads.
