About the Andrew B. Kaufman World Medicine Pathway

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. 

A "pathway" is a supplemental program that provides enriching experiences for students with interests beyond the core medical school curriculum. Students who complete the pathway receive a certificate as well as a designation on their transcript from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and on the Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE).

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