Liaquat National Medical College has implemented system-based integrated Spiral Curriculum in accordance with the guidelines of the Pakistan Medical & Dental College and Jinnah Sindh Medical University (JSMU). In Spiral Curriculum, the students are given opportunities to revisit segments of learning throughout their five years of education. This helps them to make links between concepts and develop understanding. As the student progresses to each new phase in the spiral, new information and skills are introduced that build on the information and skills from the previous phase. Thus students gain new knowledge by expanding and developing their existing knowledge.

In this curriculum, students will learn in an integrated mannerby linking basic science knowledge to clinical problems. For example, different organ systemsuch as cardiovascular system (in form of module)will be introduced in MBBS first year with focus on normal and abnormalstructures, andfunction associated with basic and clinical science, hospital and community perspectives. Related to the module, relevant basic and clinical disciplines will be covered for meaningful students’ understanding of the body system. Students’ early exposure to clinics, hospital settings and Skills Lab are essential learning experiences for every module.
