Student Success

Samuel Merritt University's framework for student success describes transformative learning for practice as the over-arching experience that prepares students for the healthcare professions:

"Through transformative learning experiences, successful students at Samuel Merritt University achieve the institutional learning outcomes and mastery of competencies required by their discipline and the broader health care environment. Successful graduates demonstrate a commitment to the core values of health equity and service to the community. Students develop habits of thinking (habits of the mind), skillful practice (habits of the hands), and professionalism (habits of the heart) to make a lasting impact on the well-being of people and society."
