Curricular Threads

We've woven five threads throughout all phases of our curriculum. These threads are designed to help students develop into evidence-based clinicians who provide cost-effective, safe, quality care and work well as part of an interprofessional team.

In addition to these threads, the Delivery of Optimized Care component includes case-based discussions that focus on the intersection of multiple threads and Business of Medicine is a component in which students will learn to navigate the complex, ever-changing healthcare marketplace.
