Integrated Medical Curriculum

The Integrated Medical School Curriculum (IMC) in the first and second years integrates the basic sciences with clinical case discussions and emphasizes self-directed and small group case-based learning as well as interpersonal and communication skills.

Case studies emphasize common medical conditions which illustrate important scientific principles.

Gross Human Anatomy (PAS 500), given in the first semester, and the four-semester Clinical Practice of Medicine sequence (IDM-520/521 and IDM-620/621) are taught in a more traditional format.
