Teaching Immunization for Medical Education (TIME)
Share |

This curriculum is designed for use in medical schools to support immunization instruction. The materials provide student objectives, learning objectives, key teaching points, and resources.

The TIME modules provide ready-to-use instructional materials that can be integrated into existing medical curricula. The modules include vaccine indications and contraindications, immunization schedules, and recommendations on efficient ways to increase vaccination levels. The following case-based modules are designed to encourage active, small-group learning, use modest amounts of faculty and learner time and are objective-driven.
