What Sets SMU Apart

SMU is recognized as a premier health sciences institution. Expert faculty and staff shape an inclusive learning environment where students experience best teaching practices and state-of-the-art learning approaches. We see faculty and students as partners in the teaching and learning process. Our programs, curricula, and courses are designed to encourage active, experiential learning as well as collegial, scholarly, and effective communications.  We believe that clinical and practical applications, including interprofessional education, provide a critical foundation for learning in the health professions. 

The University selects and supports students who flourish in its rigorous academic programs, learn to practice expertly, and pass licensure or certification examinations on the first attempt. SMU graduates use sound reasoning, evidence-based care, and clinical expertise to respond to the needs of the people they serve.
