BDS Curriculum

Curriculum Book of BDS

The curriculum book of BDS consists of the content introduced to the medical students of BDS during their 4 years of undergraduate medical education at Women Medical & Dental College, Abbottabad (WMDC). It is based on the educational standards and curriculum guidelines provided by the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME), Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC), Higher Education Commission, Pakistan (HEC), and Khyber Medical University, Peshawar (KMU). The curriculum of Women Medical and Dental College (WMDC) adopts the evidence-based concept of constructive alignment.

Curriculum Development:

With the changing trends in medical education worldwide, the Department of Medical Education & Research (DMER), and Women Medical and Dental College (WMDC) reviewed the teaching and learning process in the institute. This led to the introduction of small group interactive sessions and online learning management systems to promote learning. The curriculum of Women Medical & Dental College (WMDC) is distinct due to the application of the evidence-based concept of constructive alignment introduced by Biggs (1996). According to this concept, the Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) must be aligned with the Learning and Teaching (L&T) activities and assessments for effective learning. Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) refer to what a learner should be able to acquire or do at the end of a course or session (Biggs, 1996). This framework has been integrated into the guidelines provided by Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC), Higher Education Commission (HEC), and Khyber Medical University (KMU).
