Curriculum Structure

The six-year program is structured around three themes:

  • Clinician

We start with basic sciences (Biophysics, Chemistry and Biology) in year one and move to pre-clinical sciences followed by clinical sciences.

  • Professional

This theme will introduce professional attributes as a medical student through the unit on medical ethics and psychology in year one. As you progress into year two, this theme will be embedded into all the units offered in the MD program with clear expectations required of a medical student in the academic, clinical and social settings.

  • Researcher

Bioinformatics in year one sets the foundation of this theme with some content in the unit “ Psychology and Medical Ethics”. From year two, onwards there are units offered in the Foundations of Research stream, Evidence based Practice in clinical units leading to research project which is a requirement for each student to graduate.
