This program is administered by the Office of Medical Education, which schedules informal, small-group, and individual tutorials during the regular academic year. These sessions are intended to enable freshman and sophomore medical students to improve their performance in the required subjects by frequent review and discussion. In addition, workshops aid students in acquiring techniques of organizing information for individual review and content analysis and in the development of critical thinking skills. These workshops are offered during freshman orientation and during the regular academic year.
