Years 1 and 2
In addition to the Master of Science in Population Medicine degree courses, other curricular elements in the first two years at AMS include the following:
- Doctoring. Introducing students to the practice of medicine by teaching history and physical examination skills. Students will be placed in Primary Care practice sites that have the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) distinction.
- Integrated Basic Science Curriculum. Anatomy, histology, genetics, physiology, pathophysiology, pathology, and pharmacology are seamlessly integrated with each other and with population medicine.
- A Focus on Active Learning. Lectures augmented by small and large group discussions, interactive workshops and online modules.
