Independent Student Analysis (ISA)

Part of the accreditation process involves an independent review by student leadership of relevant topic areas, such as the medical education program, student services, the learning environment, and the adequacy of educational resources. This analysis is compiled into a report that includes results of a student opinion questionnaire and an analysis and interpretation of the findings.

The ISA team, chaired by Adam Tate, Class of 2018, completed its work last spring.
