Three Phases = Four Elements + Five Threads
The traditional “2+2” model – two years of classroom instruction with two years of clinical learning – has been replaced with a three-phase integrated curriculum. Throughout the four years, foundational science and clinical medicine are seamlessly intertwined and Professional Development and Health & Society content is emphasized.
- Three-Phase Structure
The four years are divided into three phases of learning, each with stage-appropriate learning objectives and competency.
- Four Curricular Elements
Four elements are present in all 3 phases of the curriculum and form the foundation and framework for learning.
- Five Threads
Unique content is interwoven throughout the curriculum that enhances the learning of essential skills for the practice of 21st century medicine. These content areas help distinguish Feinberg graduates as highly sought-after applicants for residency programs.
