The New Integrated Basic Science Curriculum for January 2016

The administration and faculty at Atlantic University of Medicine is pleased to announce the introduction of our newly revised M.D. program, utilizing a new integrated basic science curriculum. All freshmen M.D. students to our medical university will be entering this brand-new program beginning January 2016.

The new basic science medical program we have created was approved by the curriculum committee in November 2015 amidst great support by the faculty and academic dean. The curriculum provides vertical and horizontal integration of the medical basic science disciplines, providing students and faculty with greater time and exposure to important medical-related concepts.

Additionally, the curriculum reduces the course load for each semester, thus providing for excellent student outcomes throughout the basic science program and leading into USMLE Step 1. This revision of the M.D. program furthers our university’s commitment to truly create successful careers in medicine for our students.
