The Vesalius Living and Learning Community is a selective program that allows health-professions students to live together, collaborate on community projects, and participate in an academically supportive environment. Students who participate in this project are uniquely prepared to pursue a Minor in Medical Humanities.
Vesalius community students will live on a dedicated wing of the new Baldwin Hall, take one course per semester, take one course per semester as a cohort, participate in a community book club, and have a unique opportunity to engage with a group of like-minded individuals. In most cases, but not all, the following attributes are good predictors of success in the Vesalius Living and Learning Community:
- Significant interest in pursuing study in a health profession
- Extracurricular activities involving a high level of peer collaboration
- Meaningful community involvement
- Strong academic potential
- A carefully crafted resume
