During the first week of medical school, each medical student is assigned to a Learning Community based on their regional campus assignments for clinical work.  The LC program is designed to support medical students and enable them to connect and collaborate with both faculty mentors and other trainees throughout the four years of medical school.  Each of the Learning Communities are named after inspiring and prominent figures within the School of Medicine‚Äôs past and are intended to remind students of what they can achieve.  The Huntsville Learning Communities are the Harrison Community and the Hamilton Community.
