Several other curricular topics are integrated within the Foundations of Doctoring Curriculum, including Threads sessions, Interprofessional Education sessions, IHI Open School Modules and the Clinical Interlude.
As in the Essentials Core Blocks, Threads content is integrated into Foundations of Doctoring curricular time. There are sessions in the Humanities, Ethics and Professionalism (HEP), Medicine and Society (M&S), and Culturally Effective Medicine (CEM) threads.
You will participate in required interprofessional curriculum along with the other health professions students on campus. This consists of the Fundamentals of Quality & Collaborative Care modules/sessions.
