Abstract

The University of Health Sciences Lahore has recently introduced an integrated modular curriculum (IMC) for its undergraduate MBBS program. There is no specific international obligation on Pakistan to follow an integrated modular curriculum for MBBS. Many medical schools in USA, UK, Australia and India have adopted and then left the integrated modular curriculum for undergraduate medical courses. Basic to clinical (vertical) integration is the problem of medical schools where basic medical sciences are taught by non-medical teachers. Pakistani medical colleges have physician teachers in all basic medical sciences. UHS curriculum has many flaws in designing, implementation and assessment. Without proper training of teachers, IMC is not suitable for Pakistan.
