Science Education in Integrated Curricula (SEIC)


Many medical curricula are undergoing revision in an effort to integrate basic science knowledge with clinical decision-making skills. The mission of the SEIC-SIG is to establish a forum of communication in which basic science faculty and others can share ideas about how to best accomplish this common goal. Proposed activities include organizing a dedicated oral presentation session and workshop at the annual SGEA meeting that will allow faculty to share experiences with alternative teaching pedagogies, as well as ideas on how to organize, prioritize, and integrate the learning of science knowledge in an integrated curriculum.

Our current activities revolve around 3 projects.  The first includes a survey to schools who have adopted an integrated curriculum  to determine how much concern there is among  faculty (or students) about tracking performance within traditional disciplines?  How such information is tracked.  And a plan to extract information about the range of “integrated” curricula and follow up correlation with USMLE Step 1 results.  The second project focuses on innovation in integrated, active, and self-directed learning that emphasize basic science.  We hope to develop a process for sharing innovative teaching materials/activities/ideas that foster the shift from discipline-based to integrated learning.  Our long term project aims to develop a core basic science curriculum that can be shared across medical schools (think EPAs for basic science).  This would consist of common core objectives and shared cases.
