Curriculum for the 21 st century l.jpg

Curriculum for the 21st Century:

To Develop a Curriculum that truly Integrates the Basic & Clinical Sciences Throughout the Four Years of Medical School

  • Spiral integration of basic sciences into clinical years with concomitant integration of clinical medicine into preclinical years. (Thematic Pillars)

  • Enhanced meaningful patient-centered longitudinal clinical exposure. (P.L.A.C.E)

  • Increased use of self-directed learning and simulation.(Online learning modules and new state of the art simulation center)

Curriculum for the 21 st century30 l.jpg

Curriculum for the 21st Century:

Restructure of our medical school curriculum to 1.5 years Preclinical + 2.5 Clinical Years

  • Earlier clinical rotations allow flexibility for early exposure to career options

  • Offer flexibility for students to differentiate and pursue other areas of interest including a scholarly project (8-12 weeks)

  • Addition of “selectives” provide students with flexibility to customize their clinical experience (eg. radiology, palliative care, emergency medicine)

  • Offer flexibility for students to pursue a dual degree without requiring a fifth year
