A-Six-Step Approach to Curriculum Development:


Framework Followed for MBBS Curriculum:

The curriculum is a sophisticated blend of educational strategies, course content, learning outcomes, educational experiences, assessment, the educational environment and the individual student’s learning style, personal timetable and programme of work. The Learning Objectives of the Curriculum are provided by the Curriculum Committee KMU through a Representative of WM&DC. On the basis of these Los, we design our learning and teaching activities that include, Lectures, SGDs, Skills Lab, SDL, PBLs, and Clinical exposure of students. The students are assessed through formative and summative assessments, in which 20% weightage is given to internal exams., and 80% weightage is for professional exams conducted by the university.


Curriculum Design:

The Curriculum of MBBS is designed to produce competent, compassionate, and efficient health professionals. Following the standards of PMC, we try to accomplish the “SEVEN STAR DOCTOR” after the completion of the 5-year Degree; expected generic competencies in a medical graduate are as follows:
