There are eight-integrated vertical modules in phase II of the MBBS curriculum. These are:
All Vertical modules, except Family Health, start from Year 2 and continue to Year 6. The Family Health VM starts from Year 3 and continues to Year 6.
The integrated vertical modules are taught and assessed within the horizontal modules and extend through all years of phase II of the program. Where the learning is integrated with the horizontal module the learning outcomes of the vertical modules are presented as part of the overall learning outcomes for the module. Some Vertical Module learning happens alongside the horizontal module and so learning outcomes that take place during the time the horizontal module takes place. They are also presented alongside horizontal module or the year learning outcomes.
Vertical modules learning assessment is fully integrated into the formative and summative assessments in module and each year. Much of the contents of each vertical module are embedded within the horizontal modules. For full details of the contents, please refer to the horizontal modules in each year. However, each vertical module has its own aims, learning outcomes, and activities that can be presented for the vertical module as a whole.
