How we know what isn’t so: The hidden value of (and integration of) basic science education
May 17, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Since Flexner`s time, integration of basic and clinical sciences has been a concern for medical education. As a concept however, integration has more often been understood through opinion instead of evidence. “Curriculum integration” is a popular concept but one that has multiple – and occasionally conflicting – meanings. This presentation will review how curriculum integration may be misunderstood by basic science teachers and clinical teachers alike. I will highlight different perspectives on the concept of curriculum integration at several levels of analysis and will reconcile these perspective using theory and evidence.
