A.T. Still University (ATSU) is a culturally rich environment leading the way in whole-person health education with cutting edge technology and instruction. From its inception in 1892, ATSU has had a long tradition of inclusion. By capitalizing on local, regional, national and global community relationships, ATSU has mastered the concept of access and opportunity for culturally proficient faculty and administrators to explore their career interests and enrich the ATSU community as we reflect the communities we serve.
ATSU's newest medical school began development in response to a need expressed by the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC). The aim of the educational program is to produce leaders in medicine who will take the foundation of a broad education in medicine to improve health through patient care and educational research. It will prepare physicians to practice compassionate clinical medicine of the highest standard and to identify and solve fundamental questions in the mechanisms, prevention and treatment of disease. ATSU-SOMA implemented the Clinical Presentation Educational Model and follows an innovative path built around a core of dedicated faculty who design and teach course content modules and who work with renowned visiting faculty.
Community Health Centers anticipate a need for an additional 14,000 physicians by 2020, and are partnering with ATSU to identify, educate, and train high quality, community minded physicians. The medical school continues ATSU’s partnership with NACHC by featuring Contextual Learning Campuses at eleven of the nation’s premier Community Health Centers. This nationally representative network of Community Health Centers will serve as campuses for students during their second, third and fourth years of medical school. These campuses, staffed by ATSU-SOMA faculty, will provide team-learning classrooms, primary care clinical experience homes, and a continuity base for local CHC affiliated specialty rotations.
