Medicine Program Overview
The five-year program is designed as a firm foundation for the advanced studies offered later in the medical phase of the MD program. These years of study are comprised of preclinical sciences, social sciences, and humanities, and serve as a foundation to the basic sciences which comprise the first two years of the medical phase. Students may also consider completing the first year of basic science education on the campus of Northumbria University.
The third year of the preclinical phase consists of upper-level biomedical and behavioral science courses designed to strengthen students’ preclinical sciences foundation and learning development program to enhance the opportunity for success in advanced medical studies.
The Supplemental Instruction Model of peer learning, as well as peer review groups and mentoring, are offered for science courses taught within the preclinical program. Throughout all years of the preclinical program, there is a strong focus on study skills development and academic enhancement.
