Abstract

Paul L Foster School of Medicine is adopting a clinical presentation based curriculum that encompasses an approach of teaching clinical knowledge, medical skills and diagnostic imaging to the first and second year medical students. This approach may help our students to better integrate knowledge they acquire during the first two years of their medical education into the years of clerkship, residency and beyond. We believe that early integration of different medical imaging modalities and basic science disciplines, in particular the anatomy and pathology, may lead to more efficient use of medical technology and cost beneficial medical practice in the future.
