Patient-Centered Systems Curriculum
ATSU-MOSDOH’s curriculum begins with foundations of medicine, which is a semester of orientation to all of the sciences supporting clinical medicine. The curriculum transitions to a patient-centered systems model in which all student learning is clinically contextualized. For instance, the gastrointestinal (GI) system physiology is taught alongside the principles of medicine and the exam and diagnosis of GI issues.
In the first two years, courses prepare students for the curriculum expected during the clinical rotation experience. During the third and fourth years, the Clinical curriculum is comprised of labs, didactics, workshops, and osteopathic manipulative medicine and delivered to students in regional sites.
