Saint Louis University’s medical education is built around the academic and personal success of students with the goal is that every student will achieve:
- Excellent performance on the U.S. Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE)
- Success in matching into competitive residency programs across the country
- Personal health and well-being
- A passion for a medical specialty or related-area
The School of Medicine has an excellent track record in each of the above areas. Students consistently perform above the national average on the USMLE Step 1 examination. Clinical training provides outstanding preparation for residency, and our students match each year at some of the strongest, most competitive programs in the country. Just as importantly, graduates from the School of Medicine are concerned for the sanctity of human life, have a commitment to dignity and respect in the provision of medical care to all patients and a devotion to social justice, especially regarding inequities in the availability of health care.
