The McGill Faculty of Medicine is recognized as Canada’s first and foremost undergraduate medical school and McGill University’s first Faculty. The first in Canada, the Faculty enjoys a long and storied history, preparing generations of graduates to become leading health care practitioners, educators and researchers.
Serving society’s needs is of the utmost importance and requires training graduates well-equipped to assume leadership roles in the community. This entails keeping a constant watchful eye towards evolving the curriculum and continuous fine-tuning to ensure it remains in step with the health science environment of the 21st century in Quebec, nationally and globally.
The new MDCM curriculum, whose implementation will begin in fall 2013 marking one of the largest renewals in Faculty history, is a product of five years of reflection, multi-disciplinary consultation, planning and development. Rooted in the principle of “The Patient at Heart and Science in Hand,” the new curriculum fully recognizes the importance of family medicine in addressing current needs, while simultaneously providing a program that is firmly rooted in science. Also significant is interdisciplinary learning, as well as offering a longitudinal experience where the major themes are learned in tandem rather than in isolation.
