House Librarians and Liaisons
A central component of the UMass Chan Learner-centered Integrated Curriculum (LInC) is the assignment of each School of Medicine student into one of six learning communities or "houses". In this environment small-group learning, career development and mentoring will occur. In addition to house leaders and faculty advisors/mentors, each house has been assigned a librarian who will help students develop life-long skills at finding and interpreting high quality and Evidence-Based medical information.
