About Us

Dean's Message

The Norton College of Medicine is committed to creating a vibrant and diverse learning environment that is dedicated to education, research, and compassionate healthcare. We embrace the diversity of our campus and the communities in which we serve and seek to improve health access and equity. In addition to recruiting a diverse student body, faculty and staff, we will strive to maximize the sense of belonging on our campus. Our curriculum will emphasize the importance of social determinants of health and remove educational content that promotes or perpetuates racial, ethnic, or other harmful stereotypes. Our goal is to produce graduates who will create lasting change for a more just and equitable healthcare system.
