NUST Medicine and Applied Biosciences

Medicine
Medicine is the art and science of healing. It encompasses a
range of healthcare practices to maintain and restore health
through prevention and treatment. Contemporary medicine
includes health science, bio-medical research and medical
technology to diagnose and treat injury and disease, typically,
through medication, surgery or some other form of therapy.
Medicine is concerned with the training of knowledgeable,
caring, competent and skilful professionals to look after the
health of the humankind and treat the diseases it falls prey to.
The medical curriculum followed at Army Medical College
consists of learning about the science of the human body in
health and disease (pre-clinical years) and then a period of
applying that knowledge during an interaction with patients
(clinical years). The unique programmes of the College lay
emphasis on the art of effective communication with patients.
Teaching is built on inter-disciplinary units of study and tasks
that focus on clinical cases and conditions. There is a distinct
emphasis on developing problem-solving skills through
clinical reasoning. Students receive supervised study projects
and assessments at each stage of learning. These projects
help students explore and monitor their attitudes as future
professionals and utilisation of acquired knowledge.
