Program Details

Program Description

The School of Medicine grants the degree of Doctor of Medicine (MD) to students who have completed the prescribed curriculum and who have been recommended for the degree by faculty of the school.

Career Profile

Primary care physicians—those who see the patient first and coordinate care—are especially in demand. These doctors are often family physicians, pediatricians, internists, and obstetrician/ gynecologists. Employment of physicians is expected to grow faster than average for all occupations due to continued expansion of the health industry. In analyzing job prospects, remember that an oversupply may not limit the ability of physicians to find employment or to set up and maintain a practice.
