In keeping with the Report of the Panel on the General Professional Education of the Physician (), Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) School of Medicine is in the midst of revising its curriculum. After a 4‐year process, the Curriculum Committee mandated development of the Principles of Clinical Medicine course, a 2‐year longitudinal course integrating input from both basic and clinical science departments. We describe the steps leading to the course's implementation, its administrative and organizational structure, the evaluation of student performance, teacher training, course curriculum, and the use of interdisciplinary teaching. This course embodies many of the changes called for in the AAMC Report and serves as a model for interdisciplinary education. 1995 Blackwell Publishing
