Resources for Sanford School of Medicine, The University of South Dakota medical students and residents.


Please take advantage of the library's many services! We are available to provide instruction, either in group or individual formats, on a variety of topics, such as: searching databases, finding resources in the library, critically appraising the literature, evidence-based medicine concepts and tools, and using EndNote.

Pillar 1

Foundational biomedical sciences are integrated into two foundations courses and eight organ system blocks with limited lectures, early clinical exposure, case-based small groups and simulation.

Pillar 2

Clinical clerkships in core disciplines are integrated into a longitudinal outpatient experience including short hospital-based blocks and a rural family medicine block. Frontier and Rural Medicine (FARM) Program students accomplish Pillar 2 in rural communities across the state.

Pillar 3

The final 17 months include surgery subspecialties, sub-internships, emergency medicine and rural family medicine. Students also have generous opportunities for electives, research, out-of-state and global experiences.
