The integration of medical teaching and practice in the College of Medicine was envisioned by its founder, Dr. Daniel Drake, in 1918. Using this integrated curricular approach and a variety of teaching modalities such as lab, small group discussion, team-based learning and lectures, the first two years of the MD program provide students with the scientific and humanistic principles of medicine including the application of those principles to medical practice.
