Among its pioneering educational initiatives, it was one of the first major medical schools to integrate bedside experience with learning, bringing first-year students into contact with patients and linking classroom study to case experience. The institution also led the way in developing bioethics as an accepted academic discipline in medical school curricula, was the first to establish an academic Department of Family Medicine and was the first to create a residency program in internal medicine with an emphasis on Women’s Health.
