Introducing Vista

Vista currently under consideration by the EPC to launch in fall 2022, building on the lessons of the Learner-centered Integrated Curriculum (LInC) and scientific, pedagogic, and societal advances

Vista adds the new health system science pillar to those of biomedical and clinical science and fortifies critically important curricular domains including health equity, diversity and inclusion, population and community health, and learner, provider and patient wellness

Vista optimizes the application of technology in learning and healthcare, highlighting simulation and hybrid modalities

Vista is structured by three phases: “Discovery, Exploration, and Frontiers” (final approval of naming pending), breaking the traditional 2 + 2 model of medical education

Vista engages all students in self-selected Pathways, supporting smaller cohort-based inquiry and applied learning to develop individual and intersecting interests and skills

Vista adds UMass Chan to a list of dozens of American medical schools offering parallel accelerated 3-year MD programs for a subset of learners aligned with specific, pre-selected generalist residencies.

What is in our name?

Vista is evocative of Vision, perspective, outlook, opportunity, succession, awareness, possibility and expresses the strengths, goals, and aspirations of our institution
