Curricular threads represents content that is of special emphasis throughout the curriculum.
Five threads weave across all phases of the curriculum and will help students to develop into evidence-based clinicians who provide cost-effective, safe and quality care as part of an inter-professional team. These threads, which will set Feinberg School of Medicine graduates apart, include:
- Healthcare Quality & Patient Safety
- Teamwork & Leadership
- Lifestyle Medicine
- Medical Decision-Making & Diagnostic Testing
(The thread colors correspond to the element group in which they reside in the new curriculum.)
