Phase I Curriculum, Years One and Two
The ACE Curriculum (Active-learning, Competency-based, Excellence-driven) consists of an integrated block structure based on organ systems that systematically introduces foundational and clinical content across the four years. With the exception of the Introduction to Doctoring block, each block is nine weeks in length with the ninth week used for assessment, remediation and enrichment activities. Introduction to Doctoring is a three-week block focusing on history and physical exams skills, as well as aspects of evidenced-based medicine and social determinants of health.
