The Integrated Model of the MBBS curriculum typically combines traditional basic science courses with early clinical exposure and problem-based learning. This approach aims to foster a deeper understanding of medical concepts from the outset and emphasizes the application of knowledge in clinical settings. Integrated curricula often integrate various disciplines, allowing students to see the interconnectedness of the subjects and their relevance to clinical practice. It may include modules on communication skills, professionalism, and evidence-based medicine, preparing students for the complex realities of medical practice.
Vice Chancellor, FJMU Prof. Khalid Masud Gondal, emphasized the importance of gradually adapting the Education System to International Standards. He reiterated the gradual implementation of Integrated System which will be standardized as well as sustainable.
