Advancing human health by training physicians to create the future of medicine, science and society

Enriched by a culture that supports diversity, inclusion, critical thinking and creativity, our students will go on to:

  • Change the face of medicine through discovery and innovation;
  • Reimagine health care to make high quality care accessible to all; and,
  • Educate and inspire generations to come.

In alignment with our mission, we are committed to addressing racism in education.


In addition to the standard, four-year curriculum, a number of combined degree and master’s degree options are available. Assessment of learning is based on stated criteria, and support services are available for teachers and learners.


The Washington University School of Medicine’s MD program is nationally accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME). For details, see the Bulletin.
