Description

The integration of basic and clinical sciences remains a constant challenge for educators and scholars across the health professions. “Curriculum integration” is therefore a popular concept but one that has multiple – and occasionally conflicting – meanings. This presentation will review how curriculum integration can be misunderstood basic science teachers, clinical teachers and students. I will highlight different perspectives on the concept of curriculum integration at various levels of analysis and will reconcile these perspectives using theories of learner cognition and expertise development.
