As an element of the medical school curriculum, the overarching mission of Medical Student Research Curriculum at Vanderbilt is to educate our students about biomedical research through a series of coursework, training and experience in order to help them develop their critical thinking, innovation, leadership, and moral and civic capacities to the fullest.
The aim of this research education is the cultivation of physicians with a rich awareness of not only the clinical realm, but also the research method, the critical evaluation of research, and the understanding of the contribution of research to our clinical evidence base, so that they may be physicians who can effectively serve and lead in their chosen professions.
