mBBS CURRICULUM AT A GLANCE
A great doctor’s foundations are firmly rooted in their medical training and education, and this idea lies at the heart of Birat Medical College’s academic curriculum developed by Kathmandu University. Our MBBS program is a challenging but extremely rewarding program designed to help you become a highly competent, compassionate and strongly motivated doctor, committed to the highest standards of clinical practice, professionalism and patient care.
Our Bachelors of Medicine curriculum has been designed with an emphasis on problem-based learning and group work. Students work cooperatively on a carefully planned series of patient-centered problems, each designed to highlight principles and issues in health and disease. Early patient contact and clinical training develop high levels of clinical skills and medical knowledge. The program’s key features include: the simultaneous learning of basic, clinical, biological and social sciences, the improved teaching of communication skills, the use of learning approaches that encourage lifelong learning skills; the incorporation of ethics and professional development as an integral part of program; and the incorporation of information technology and computing skills to ensure that graduates are able to utilize technological advances to improve their learning skills and knowledge acquisition. Students in years 3 onwards of the program undertake clinical rotations within the BMC’s own teaching hospitals.
The four and half year span of the MBBS course of study is divided into nine units, each spanning a (6) six months duration. The first four units are devoted to the Basic Medical Sciences and the next five units are devoted to the Clinical Sciences. After successful completion of the course of study of four and half years, and having passed the final MBBS examination, the students will have to complete a one year of compulsory Residential Internship to become eligible for being conferred with the degree of MBBS under Kathmandu University.
