Current Medical Students
Clinical experiences are introduced early in the first year in the Patient Centered Medicine course.
Measurable course objectives and benchmarks
have been developed for students in Pre-Clerkship and Clerkship/Advanced phases
of the curriculum. Clinical training is enhanced through the use of standardized
patients, Objective Structured Clinical Exercises (OSCE), and individual
observation and feedback by the more than 2,400 full time and volunteer faculty.
All educational experiences undergo rigorous evaluation by student and faculty
members of the Curriculum Committee throughout the four years.
Wood Johnson Medical School is dedicated to excellence in medical

Wood Johnson Medical School has adopted the Accreditation Committee for
Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) competencies, modified for medical students, to
serve as an organizing framework for the curriculum.
