The role of basic science subjects in the making of a competent medical graduate and a health care professional is crucial and thus multiple number of approaches have been tried to merge basic science with clinical medicine. The organ-system based medical curriculum is a type of integrated teaching, which has been advocated and adopted across different medical curriculum and has delivered promising results, especially with regard to increasing the depth of medical knowledge and a comprehensive understanding of each of the organ systems. Even though, this form of curriculum has been adopted by different medical schools, we have to acknowledge that for getting the intended outcomes, loads of investment in terms of time and efforts are required for the successful planning, organization and implementation. In conclusion, the adoption of an organ system-based medical curriculum is an effective and a sound approach to curriculum delivery as it addresses the limitations of the traditional curriculum and also strengthen the relevance of basic and clinical medicine in the minds of the medical students.
