The Wayne State University School of Medicine has established a comprehensive set of competencies and institutional objectives to prepare students for practicing medicine in the 21st century. The PDFs summarize the general competencies and institutional learning objectives according to year.
The six general clinical competencies for medical students (identical to the general competences of postgraduate training) include:
- Integration of the Basic Sciences in Medicine
- Integration of Clinical Knowledge and Skills to Patient Care
- Interpersonal and Communication Skills
- Organization and Systems-Based Approach to Medicine
- Life Long Learning and Self-Improvement
As you progress through the curriculum of medical school, periodically review these competencies and educational objectives. They provide valuable guides to the organization of the knowledge, skills and attitudes you will learn during this phase of your professional growth.
The curriculum guides are updated periodically and the updated version is displayed here in PDF format.
