The curriculum model considers that biological, behavioural, and sociological aspects are fundamental to medical practice and delivery of healthcare by WUSL graduates. Based on the foundation knowledge students are expected to master the basic clinical, medico-legal, and public health competencies required for efficient functioning as an intern medical officer and thereafter as an early career medical officer, both nationally and internationally. The WUSL graduate will also require adopting a professional approach to their work and be mindful and skilful in maintaining their personal well-being and continuing professional development.
