Professional Competencies

In Pre-Clinical studies, Professional Competencies (Pro Comp) runs in parallel to the Medical Foundations. Groups of 8-10 students work with a pair of facilitators, one an MD and one a clinician from a different discipline. The groups stay together for the entirety of Pre-Clinical, meeting every Tuesday morning for 3 hours. They explore material covering seven domains: effective communication, medical decision-making, moral reasoning and ethical judgement, population health, professionalism and self-awareness and self-care, inter-professional practice and social, cultural and humanistic dimensions of health.

In the Clinical curriculum, Pro Comp topics and issues are integrated into the core Clinical rotations in different ways, depending on the rotation.
