The educational program is composed of pre-clinical and clinical segments, each two-years in duration, and provides opportunities for students to master the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to become accomplished and creative physicians with outstanding clinical skills (figure 1). Throughout the four years is an emphasis on three interrelated themes (figure 2): a rigorous core scientific and clinical curriculum (the science), a comprehensive clinical skill-builiding program (the art) and opportunities to engage in complex clinical reasoning (medical-decision-making).
