Freshman Orientation is designed to help you make a smooth transition into medical school. During this first week, prior to the start of classes, you will learn about our medical school curriculum, policies, and procedures, get to know your fellow classmates, and become familiar with campus resources and services. It is our goal that by the time you leave orientation, you’ll be well on your way to becoming a successful HWCOM medical student.
