My experience at Marshall was phenomenal!  Small classes coupled with compassionate, knowledgeable professors provide Marshall a distinctive advantage and in turn, has given me a quality education.  Marshall is a small medical school, but the opportunities for learning and research are great.  I am proud to be a graduate from the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine.

The years I have spent at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine provided a strong academic and clinical foundation that helped prepare me for a career as a Medicine-Pediatrics physician. The faculty and staff at Marshall are committed to providing excellence in medical education, research, and patient care. Despite the class size expansion to 75 students, the atmosphere at Marshall continues to be a family-like experience that nurtures personal growth and development. Marshall continues to be well known for training primary care physicians, but we also place medical students in competitive residency fields around the country each year.

Caring. Supportive. Encouraging. These are just some of the words that describe the Marshall School of Medicine. From the moment I entered the halls of medical school, I realized that it was a unique place to receive my medical training. Medical school will be one of the most challenging parts of your life, and it is important to choose a place that will cater to your specific needs. Marshall did that for me - it allowed me to work hard and learn on my own, but also light the path for a successful career in medicine. All you have to be willing to provide is the hard work necessary to complete that career, and Marshall will provide the foundation to succeed in whichever field of medicine you choose.
