About the college
Founded in 1822, The Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine is the seventh oldest medical school in the nation. In 2016, a gift from Class of 1942 graduate Dr. Robert Larner and his wife, Helen, strengthened the College's efforts to provide a medical education that is second to none. Initiatives included digitizing the curriculum, creating innovative classrooms to facilitate active learning, building an enhanced simulation center to help students learn clinical skills, and the recruitment of an endowed Professor of Medical Education to lead the Teaching Academy.
