Curriculum

Interprofessional education experiences occur throughout the four years of medical education. During the first two years of medical education students are exposed to educational experiences that include integration of basic science and clinical faculty team teaching. Instructors from the schools of dentistry and nursing in addition to statisticians, attorneys, ethicists, actual patients and department of health personnel contribute to the interprofessional education. These experiences form a foundation that is built upon during the clinical years.

Interprofessional practice is a daylong component of the orientation that students participate in at the beginning of their third year. The clinical clerkships during the third and fourth years include shared clinical experiences with pharmacy, nurse practitioner, physician assistant and social work students. CARES, NJISA and the NMI incorporate interprofessional medical care that includes social work, psychiatry, psychology, physical therapy, osteopathic manipulative medicine and primary care. All students participate in these clinical clerkships.
