Students at DMC benefit from curricular innovations, access to medical staff, and a high level of communication with student representatives and clerkship directors. DMC is committed to making the educational experience a two-way process of communication, learning as much from students about how to create an ideal system, as students learn about how to become the best in their chosen field.
