Curriculum Overview

The Preventive Medicine Program teaches the essentials of epidemiology, biostatistics, public health, clinical prevention , population-oriented prevention, health systems, health policy and evidence-based medicine throughout the four year curriculum in the medical school.

Our curriculum follows the guidelines of the Liaison Committee for Medical Education, and also uses, as particular inspiration, the Healthy People Curriculum Task Force recommendations.

The program has a presence in all four years of medical education, building a sound longitudinal foundation in population medicine skills and attitudes for all future physicians. The program additionally relies on the real world expertise of the faculty at the Onondaga County Health Department to provide valuable context and direct experience for prevention education.
