Education Enhancement Department

The Education Enhancement Department (EED) empowers students to realize their potential by providing services and activities that complement and enrich classroom instruction, improve student performance, and advance instructional goals for learning, retention, and progression.

Studying for medical school is quite different from undergraduate and other professions. The sheer volume of information requires specific study strategies that we know work in medical education and for long-term retention needed as a practicing physician. It is not enough to memorize or even understand concepts, you will need to be able to analyze and evaluate information to be successful in medical school and your career.
