Studying Human Medicine at the University of Geneva: An Up-to-Date, Integrated Curriculum Abstract. The curriculum of human medicine at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Geneva has been thoroughly renovated in 1995. It offers an integrated program allowing for a constant adaptation of the content to the explosion of biomedical knowledge and the changes in society. It uses active, student-centred learning methods. In line with the Bologna process since 2006, it has been accredited several times, most recently in 2019. It evolved to strengthen the importance of primary care and to introduce interprofessional training, in particular through its simulation centre. Through early and continuous clinical immersion, students acquire their practical skills in an integrated manner. These conditions are conducive to the introduction of new concepts, such as the Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) conveyed by the recent national competence framework PROFILES.
