BUSM’s educational program is designed to train physicians with the clinical skills and knowledge necessary to provide modern health care. A major emphasis is placed on Global Health and many students do international clinical or research electives.
The basic science curriculum integrates traditional lecture-style classes with small-group seminars and laboratory exercises. Self-directed learning and teamwork are emphasized. Patient contact is introduced in the first week of the first-year curriculum and the formal clinical training of the third- and fourth-year students offers broad-based preparation for post-graduate training in the full range of disciplines that comprise modern medicine.
