Abstract

Ziauddin Medical College was among the first medical colleges in Pakistan which has introduced integrated curriculum for M.B.B.S Program with concentration on teaching organ systems in preclinical years. There is considerable integration within the disciplines of Basic Health Sciences and Community Health Sciences, and limited integration of Clinical Sciences. Curriculum also have well structured Clinical clerkship program which provides students with good clinical exposure for Patient management. In year 2010, one additional “Clinical Skills Rotation” was added in clinical clerkship programme to provide additional procedural, communication and Evidence based medicine skills to students in their early clinical exposure. After successful implementation of EBM in 3rd year clerkship program me we are proposing a comprehensive plan of evidence based medicine curriculum in all 5 years of MBBS. EBM curriculum is presented here as a model and how it can be integrated into a medical curriculum.
