First Year Curriculum (M1)

After the initial phase of hands-on EMT training, you will begin your foundational studies of the scientific basis of medicine.

What are M1 classes like?

In the M1 year, you will primarily focus on the normal human body, with continuous reinforcement of the clinical relevancy of your studies and integration of clinical skills. Weekly clinical scenarios will punctuate and emphasize how alterations of normal processes lead to illness and disease. You will be challenged to recognize deviations from normal and identify where deviations most likely occurred.
