Schulich Medicine & Dentistry at Western University offers an educational experience second to none. Since 1881, the School has helped to educate generations of physicians, dentists, scholars and scientists who continue to transform research and the practice of medicine and dentistry in Canada and around the world.
The School’s reputation has been built by dedicated teachers, breakthrough discoveries, a commitment to social responsibility, strong strategic partnerships and extraordinary leadership.
Students have the opportunity to learn through a research-intensive, interdisciplinary curriculum that leverages Western University’s numerous programs and partnerships to deliver a rich and comprehensive educational experience that produces critical thinkers capable of solving complex challenges.
“During our training, as senior medical students and residents, we become teachers. Moving into the classroom and lab is different than the ward or clinic, but the principles remain the same. Know your audience, connect with them on their level and engage in a meaningful way. The connections and collaborations that result from teaching come quickly, and you can never downplay the moment when you notice your student putting the pieces together and demonstrating a level of comfort and confidence at the end of a course.”

Assistant Professor; Co-chair, Muskuloskeletal System Course;
Member, Instructional Design Committee

“We have a busy teaching site with six residents, and a number of clerks and fourth year students. As a smaller centre, students learning with us can be involved in the care of patients from the initial visit, through the care plan and the transition to follow-up. The medical team benefits from the students’ enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge. Through teaching, I have learned about life, medicine, and technology. It has helped us to raise the bar of everyone’s education and knowledge base.”

“At Schulich Medicine we learn from diverse and wellrounded faculty who are attentive and receptive to student needs. They are clinician researchers, basic scientists, and interdisciplinary health care workers. They are story-tellers, who aren’t afraid to share their own experiences and the human side of medicine. In doing so, they draw us in so that we can imagine and better understand how to apply the concepts to real-life situations.”
