Academics Transfer of Credit Given the intensive curriculum at NSU MD, which is founded upon problem-based learning and devoted to integrated, self-directed learning and discovery to develop multiple competencies, this is not likely to be possible. Therefore, the college will not accept transferring students. Course of Study NSUMD has a dedicated faculty; strong affiliations withmedical centers, hospitals, and health care systems; and a mission to educate the finest physician-leaders possible. Physicians do not work in a vacuum, but rather in a health care team, and NSU MD promotes interdisciplinary cooperation through the curriculum. Students also share teaching faculty members for some disciplines, as well as campus facilities, with NSU’s osteopathic medicine, pharmacy, dental, optometry, physician assistant, physical therapy, occupational therapy, public health, nursing, and medical science students. This proximity to colleagues from other professions promotes collegiality.
