The students at the CMU SOM are introduced to all aspects of medicine from the very first day at the School. This is accomplished by the Introduction to Clinical Medicine (ICM) courses spanning from the first to the sixth trimester of Basic Sciences. It further transitions into Clinical Medicine Training Program (CMTP) in the trimesters seventh to twelve. The foundation for the entire educational program is integrated into the Patient-oriented Active Learning of Medicine (PALM) Curriculum.
