Integrated teaching has been regarded as one of the approaches to neutralize the deficiencies associated with the traditional mode of curricular delivery. It has been realized that the current delivery of medical education in India does not empower medical students to understand the patient as a whole., Further, it is left to the abilities of the medical students to establish links between the various subjects taught and use the same for the diagnosis, care, and management of the patient. Integrated teaching has emerged as a solution to the existing shortcomings, provided the entire process, right from its conception, planning, implementation, and evaluation, has been done systematically.,
The curriculum committee of the medical college should plan the entire teaching program in collaboration with the Medical Education Unit and support from all the concerned departments., However, to ensure that the integrated teaching program is implemented smoothly, development of a module for the same can help immensely. Even though various models are available for the development of any program, considering the universality and the user-friendly nature, we will stick with the Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation Model for the development of an integrated teaching program module. The details of the model are described in [Table 1].,,,

To conclude, integrated teaching can ensure that the learning is comprehensive. However, the presence of a module will certainly streamline all the existing concerns.
