TRANSLATIONAL PILLARS in the LEARN Curriculum
Translational Pillars are one-week courses that occur after each of the four 12-week blocks of clinical clerkships in Phase II of the LEARN curriculum. The overall goal of the TPs is to underscore the importance of translational research and evidence-based patient care in the practice of medicine while promoting active self-directed, life-long learning, as well as team-based learning. TPs also introduce learners to cutting-edge topics in translational medicine and emphasize the application of “state of the art” basic science knowledge to clinical medicine.
Note: In the 2019-20 academic year, there will be TPs in both Phase II and Phase III, but in subsequent years all TPs will be offered only in Phase II of LEARN.
