The first year consists priarily of basic science and patient simulation courses. Organic Chemistry, Medical Biology and Genetics, Biophysics, Anatomy, and Biostatistics.

The second year basic science courses such as Histology, Anatomy, Microbiology and Physiology are concerned with the preclinical courses.

In the third year, students have a more enhanced clinical participation program with the pathology of the bodily systems. In the clincal experience course, they learn and practice procedures on each other, they assist with dental patients, and they assist sudents in the upper classes in the clinical group practices.

The fourth and fifth years of the program are intensely clinical. They include some day lecture courses, clinical rotations and many small group seminars/workshops, all of which are aimed at the development of greater understanding and enhanced skills in the area of patient care.
