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.
An integrated curriculum is an organization of the vertical and horizontal contents of the traditional medical curriculum into coherent learning units that bring students beyond the level of mere acquisition of facts and concepts to a higher plane of scientific understanding and fluency. Students are given more opportunities to think creatively and to act appropriately when dealing with medical problems.
Operationally, organ system integration refers to identifying clinically relevant concepts or skills that cut across the basic and clinical sciences, and uses the organ systems as foci for learning. Horizontal integration involves the unification of disciplines traditionally learned within a year level that should lead to a more comprehensive understanding of a particular cognitive area. Vertical integration, on the other hand, requires an interweaving of clinical skills and basic science knowledge starting from the early years so that learning of basic science concepts is continuous and reinforced in the clinical years. Curriculum integration can help the students cope with changes in knowledge and deal with outdated knowledge.
