Clinical Education


The Office of Clinical Education works collaboratively with SHSU-COM clinical partners to train medical students to provide holistic rural and underserved patient care. Students will demonstrate a strong foundation of osteopathic principles and practice, medical knowledge, patient care, professionalism, interpersonal and communication skills, learning and working in teams, health partnerships, practice-based learning and improvement, systems-based practice and scholarly inquiry. In addition, the Office of Clinical Education actively identifies, recruits and retains affiliated clinical faculty from SHSU-COM clinical partner hospitals and clinics for undergraduate medical education in years one through four.
