Interstitial Curriculum (ISC)

Interstitial Curriculum (ISC)

The multidisciplinary Interstitial Curriculum (ISC) combines classroom teaching, workshops, panels, films and interactions with standardized and real patients. Each ISC day, organized and taught by school of medicine, graduate school of nursing and community faculty, embodies educational objectives from basic science, clinical, psychosocial, legal, ethical and societal perspectives. 

Students provide feedback on course format, content and faculty, which helps us to improve ISCs each year.  For the last two years, student-driven content was added to ensure that educational gaps are addressed, and students are active participants in their own learning.

Because these courses are so labor-intensive, we are always looking for faculty who would be interested in developing new ISC programs or teaching in our existing course.
