Finding your way through the rigors and challenges of medical school and life, with meaningful professional, personal, and relational growth.
COMPASS is a co-curricular program with the purpose of facilitating the development of the personal-professional identity of LUCOM student-doctors.
The Carnegie Foundation Report identified professional development as one of four objectives instrumental to the formation of a physician’s professional identity. COMPASS supports this objective by facilitating the development of the personal and professional identity of LUCOM student-doctors based on biblical principles and values.
The mission of COMPASS is to facilitate LUCOM student-doctors to develop their personal-professional identity utilizing biblical principles and values.
LUCOM student-doctors will examine their worldview in light of biblical principles and values. This will impact all aspects of their life, including their spiritual development and professional practice in a positive manner. This will be evident in their life goals, values, worldview, and demonstrated character.
