About the Andrew B. Kaufman WMP

Pathway Mission

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

Pathway Vision

The Andrew B. Kaufman WMP aims to enhance medical student career development and mentorship in global health. A foundational curriculum during the pre-clerkship years will focus on building knowledge, skills, and attitudes through a series of seminars, simulations, and other experiences. Students will then receive mentorship in their clinical years that focuses on biomedical research, clinical care, capacity building, or global health/policy advocacy, and includes international elective time. 

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).

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 by August 31, 2020. 

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 by Monday, August 31, 2020.
