Across All Phases
Phase 1 – Years M1 & M2
Phase 1 includes the first 20 months of instruction. Training includes 14 modules of varying lengths that are organized by organ systems. Each module contains all four elements so that learning in context is emphasized. The modules contain all four elements of the curriculum, with a dominant focus on Science in Medicine.

Week-long Synthesis & Application Modules (SAMs) are interspersed with the organ-based modules to allow time for spaced repetition, reflection and integration of content.
