The course runs through the clinical clerkships, and has several additional features: it includes a multidisciplinary faculty; it is centrally based in the medical school; it addresses students’ values and attitudes in addition to their knowledge and skills; and it makes use of small-group learning methods, and faculty, student, and group continuity during the year. The curriculum, which addresses ethical, social, and communicative issues in medicine, plus the evaluation of students and of the course, are described.
