    The Essentials of Clinical Medicine (ECM) is a four-semester curriculum designed to give medical students knowledge and skills that they will need to provide informed and compassionate patient- and population-centered care during their clinical years. ECM is organized into two sections during the first 2 years of medical school, ECM1 and ECM 2, which are sequentially integrated and interwoven with core basic science modules. The ECM curriculum is designed to ensure a continuity of clinical education students across the Phase I and II years. Components: • The Principles of Evidence-based Decision-Making (PrEBCDM) • Clinical Skills (CS) • The Community Health Education (CHE)

    MEDI 5135 - Cellular and System Processes



    The Cellular and Systems Processes Module is designed to provide students with a basic understanding of the biological mechanisms by which the body responds to internal and external stimuli by building on the structure-function knowledge of previous Modules (ITD5115 and ITD5125). Students will understand the pathological responses to these stimuli by examining the interplay between the biochemical and physiological mechanisms, and how the latter can be influenced by genetics.
