Students who progress through the program with no interruptions other than the scheduled breaks within or between modules, will likely finish the program in 4.5 years (usually 5 years for the USMLE Pathway students).

The pre-clinical phase of the program lasts 90 weeks, and includes the 8-week General Principles Course, and 82 weeks of System-Based modules. Students who plan to practice in the US must also pass USMLE Step 1 before progressing to the clinical phase of the program.

During the clinical phase, in addition to hospital and clinic time, students should plan for a minimum two-week break between rotations to complete their logbooks and end-of-rotation exam. Given the intense workload of the clinical phase, students should expect to complete the required 72 weeks of clinical rotations within two years.
