Doctors from Day One: A good idea or bad idea? Here's why I think that it's bad: Less time for the basics. The idea that 2006s would be doing primary skills evaluations until 6:30 pm on a Friday before a Monday anatomy exam is ludicrous. "Soft skills vs hard skills". The integrated curririculum may improve the soft skills of a doctor in the long term; but it will not help one with the "hard skills" necessary for the boards. This question may have been dealt with in the past but I think that it's worth raising again - especially after the latest Anatomy course.
