The first two years of Medicine Faculty are typically “preclinical,” where students receive classroom-based instruction. However, courses are often redundant and a lot of what students learn could be covered in undergraduate prerequisites. The second four years are “clinical,” during which students participate in patient care by rotating through various specialties.

Six years of medical instructions provides enough time to teach what we currently learn and more.

Alongside coursework, Faculty of Medicine place a tremendous emphasis on student research, whether lab work or clinical. There are several proposed reasons for this emphasis — it improves critical thinking, stimulates curiosity, etc.
