An integrated curriculum is one where the summation of different academic disciplines forms a co-
herent whole and, importantly, where the relationships between the different disciplines have been
carefully and strategically considered when forming the composite. Within pharmacy curriculum in-
tegration is important in order to produce graduates who have the capacity to apply their knowledge to
a range of complex problems where available information is often incomplete. This paper discusses the
development of an integrated curriculum in which students are presented with an organized, logical
sequence of material, but still challenged to make their own integrations and develop as integrative
thinkers. An evidence-based model upon which an interdisciplinary undergraduate pharmacy curric-
ulum can be built is presented.
