Scholarly Excellence, Leadership Experiences, and Collaborative Training


The USF Health Morsani College of Medicine SELECT program (Scholarly Excellence, Leadership Experiences, and Collaborative Training) prepares students to be physician leaders who can accelerate change in health care. The program recruits and develops students with the intellectual perspective, empathy, creativity and passion to change patient care, the health of communities and the medical profession. The founding principle of SELECT is the concept that students with high emotional intelligence are more likely to develop the skills needed to transform health care and improve the health of communities. Half of the curriculum is delivered on the USF-Tampa campus in the first two years of the MD program and the other half is delivered at the USF-Lehigh Valley campus in Allentown, PA during the third and fourth years of the degree.
