"Students of Medicine, Apprentices of the Guild, with whom are the promises and in whom center our hopes -- let me congratulate you on the choice of calling which offers a combination of intellectual and moral interests found in no other profession, and not met with at all in the common pursuits of life -- a combination which, in the words of Sir James Paget, 'offers the most complete and constant union of those three qualities which have the greatest charm for pure and active minds -- novelty, utility and charity.' "
-William Osler to the students entering the University of Minnesota School of Medicine in 1892.
What is Immersion?
From public health to physical exam skills, and a lot more in-between, this experience is designed to get students acclimated in and out of the clinic setting. Throughout the three weeks, incoming students will also participate in additional sessions aimed to familiarize them with the School of Medicine. All incoming students are required to attend Immersion. Please see Canvas for additional details and your Pre-Immersion Checklist, Canvas information will be emailed to you in May or June.
