Our MD program incorporates active learning and virtual technology programs that contextualize key learning concepts to ensure that our students are not only prepared for their boards but are competitive
with their Canadian or US Counterparts.
We want to ensure that every IUHS student is prepared to sit for any boards by the conclusion of their Block 10 activities. We care about long term retention and have developed in tandem with leading educational technology platforms and resources to create a proprietary program that ensures students are continually assessing knowledge and engaging in activities to retain what they learn.
This process starts on day 1 of your medical education with IUHS.
