First Year Curriculum Mission Statement

After completing the first year curriculum, the Georgetown medical student will have an easily retrievable, multidisciplinary corpus of biomedical knowledge about the organization, function, and systems of the human body in health; a “beginners” ability to integrate, synthesize, apply, and communicate that knowledge in clinical contexts; and the capability to retrieve this knowledge accurately and systematically, apply it appropriately in understanding both normal and abnormal human biological processes, and demonstrate the ability to think critically about these processes and the problems of patients.
