Curriculum Overview

The School of Medicine launched its new curriculum, Translational Education at Carolina (TEC), in August 2014. TEC seeks to transform the way medical students learn the art and science of medicine by integrating basic sciences and clinical skills, providing longitudinal patient care experiences and offering earlier clinical opportunities in specialty fields to better inform residency program decisions. This redesigned curriculum reflects the ever-changing practice of medicine, meets the desire for early career differentiation and exploration, and incorporates the learning preferences of today’s medical students.
