MD Program Years One and Two

Recognizing that students have different learning styles, we offer two distinct tracks during the first two years of study — the Interdisciplinary Foundations of Medicine (IFM) and the Program for Integrated Learning (PIL). Both options focus on professional medical education, preparing students to pursue careers as either generalists or specialists. Both stress problem solving, lifelong learning skills, and the coordinated teaching of basic science with clinical medicine.
