INTARMED (INTegrated Liberal Arts and MEDicine), is the seven-year program of the University of the Philippines College of Medicine (UPCM) which shortens the whole medical education by two years. It consists of two years of pre-medical courses (Learning Unit I – II), four years of regular medical studies (Learning Unit III – VI), and one year of clinical internship (Learning Unit VII). Students who enter Level I are considered direct entrants while students who enter Level III are considered lateral entrants.
The INTARMED Curriculum was approved by the Board of Regents of the University of the Philippines (UP) during its 951st Meeting held on April 26, 1982. Certain revisions including the details of implementation of the clinical years were finalized and approved by the UP Manila University Council on May 26, 1987. On April 17, 1986 the UP System adopted a General Education (GE) Program which resulted in the incorporation of the requirements into the first two years of the curriculum as approved on November 20, 1987 by the UP Manila University Council. In 2002, the University approved a system-wide Revitalized GE Program. The GE courses provide a foundation in liberal education that will further enrich the first two years of the Intarmed Curriculum. On April 21, 2003 the UP Manila University Council approved the full implementation of the integrated medical curriculum starting from Year Level III in AY 2004-2005, thus completely replacing the existing curriculum by AY 2008-2009.
The aim of this program is to develop, in the shorter span of seven years, physicians who have the scientific competence to practice Medicine and the social conscience to motivate them to continuously seek ways and means of improving medical service to all levels of Philippine society.
Identifiable Component Goals
1. Develop physicians whose knowledge and skills of medical science are equally matched by those of interpersonal relationships and social responsibilities;
2. Assist students to develop, early in their education, interests and perceptions of the medical profession;
3. Encourage students to acquire, through a liberal education, the following:
• the ability to think critically and make logical and moral decisions;
• the attitude of compassion and concern for others;
• an appreciation of their role in their community in the context of social and economic conditions;
• the ability to recognize their limitations to accept their achievements and failures with equanimity, growing and learning from each experience; and
• the ability to caution themselves against impulsiveness and at the same time act in times of crisis even with insufficiencies.
4. Produce physicians who are able to develop in many directions in medicine but who will possess the basic knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for being a primary physician, capable of participating in comprehensive continuing care and working as a member of the health team.
5. Assist students to assume personal responsibility for their own education.
These goals are to be achieved by:
1. Continuously teaching the humanities throughout the seven years, with the faculty as model, to nurture the students’ ethical, human, and social development;
2. Providing the students during the first two years in the Program with the academic competence necessary for the medical courses;
3. Using the methods of coordination, synchronization and integration in the teaching of courses within the same year level and at different year levels;
4. Developing as early as in the first year the clinical skills of students to enable them to render primary health services while they are still undergraduates; and
5. Incorporating internship in the undergraduate curriculum to ensure continuing medical education among the students and to make them acquire increasing levels of professional responsibilities.
