The JMP curriculum is constructed around three distinct, interconnected branches of learning and each of which is built around themes of antiracism and changemaking. JMP students engage in deep scholarly exploration and inquiry through their Master’s in Health and Medical Sciences. At the same time, students learn Foundational Medical Sciences through their active, learner-led, small group Problem Based Learning (PBL) curriculum, and the skills of doctoring through the Clinical Skills curriculum which includes classroom learning and placements in Bay Area clinics.
The PRIME-US program is a collaborative learning experience with UCSF providing additional opportunities to work with urban underserved communities.
The abundant opportunities available at UC Berkeley provide JMP students to learn preclinical medicine grounded in antiracism and social justice.
