Course Description

The course consists of 5 years of four-part integrated program namely Human, Cell, Community, and Personal and Professional Development. Teaching and learning are based on the body system rather than the traditional separation of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology, and microbiology. The integrated medical program covers the cardiovascular system, digestive system and others, where all the basic science related to medicine and clinical discipline is involved.

This curriculum emphasizes student learning based on the early introduction of clinical experience. Community exposure and public health as well as emphasis on behavioral science, communication skills and professional development are included in the curriculum. Research methodology and experience are still an important component of the curriculum, while comprehensive clinical teaching ensures that students have sufficient clinical experience to become knowledgeable and skilled doctors.
