Curriculum

The curriculum of the School of Medicine consists of 164 weeks of instruction over a four-year period. It is divided into three phases.

Phase 1 spans the first two years, covering the core basic science instruction and the foundations of clinical medicine.

Phase 2, year three of the curriculum, providing the core clinical experiences required of all students.

Phase 3, year four of the curriculum, builds upon the clinical foundation of Phase 2, and provides students with elective opportunities to tailor their educational experience. An independent scholarly project is required in Phase 3. Students may choose to enhance their educational program by participating in combined degree programs, such as M.D./Ph.D., M.D./M.B.A. and M.D./M.P.H., or through involvement in the M.D. Enrichment Program. The latter program allows students to enrich the standard M.D. program with up to a year of full-time academic work outside of the formal combined and dual degree programs. This enrichment experience is provided at no additional tuition cost.

Michael Mei“As one of the many students serving on the curriculum reform committee, I have experienced first-hand the positive and exciting energy surrounding the coming changes to our curriculum. As we move toward a new team-based learning system, students are heavily involved with helping write and test drive the cases that form the core of our new curriculum.”
