School Overview

School Info

The Morehouse School of Medicine is a historically black institution established to recruit and train minority and other students as physicians, biomedical scientists, and public healthcare professionals committed to the primary healthcare needs of the underserved.

Curriculum

In addition to providing our students with a sound foundation in the basic and clinical sciences, the curriculum leading to the M.D. degree is designed to encourage the majority of our students to enter primary care specialties, and to practice medicine in the inner cities and rural areas of our country. We also seek to encourage and provide the highest level of preparation for those students who wish to enter academic medicine or the medical subspecialties.

Facilities

Most of the instruction in the basic medical sciences occurs in a modern 91,000 square foot facility that was constructed in 1982. The Hugh Gloster Basic Medical Sciences Building contains classrooms and laboratories, space for administration, faculty offices, an animal facility, and faculty research laboratories. In 1987, construction of a 70,000 square foot Medical Education Building that is attached to the Hugh Gloster Basic Medical Sciences Building was completed. The facility provided space to double the size of the library as well as additional faculty office and research space. Additional faculty offices, administrative offices, maintenance and repair shops, central stores are contained in a second nearby, recently renovated structure of approximately 30,000 square feet. In 1996, the School opened and dedicated a Multi-Disciplinary Research Center. It houses the Clinical Research Center, Neuroscience Center, and National Aeronautics and Space Administration programs. The National Center for Primary Care (NCPC) opened in 2002. The Morehouse School of Medicine affiliates with the following Atlanta hospitals for major clinical teaching and research: Southwest Hospital and Medical Center, Grady Health System Hospitals (Grady Memorial Hospital and Hughes Spalding Children?s Hospital), and South Fulton Medical Center. There also exists an affiliation with the Central Alabama Veterans Health Care System in Tuskegee, Alabama.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
