Integrated Premedical-Medical Program (University of Michigan) records, 1972-2002

7 linear feet — 7 oversize folders

The Integrated Premedical-Medical Program, commonly called Inteflex, combined undergraduate and medical school education into one specialized curriculum program at the University of Michigan. Inteflex was conceived to allow an integrated, flexible program through a liberal arts education offered by the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts while also obtaining a medical degree through the Medical School. Inteflex began as a six-year program in 1971, expanded to seven years in 1982, and again to eight years in 1994. The Inteflex program accepted its last entering group of students in 1998.

The Integrated Premedical-Medical Program (Inteflex) Records are divided into six series: Administrative, Committees, Curricula, Reports, Students, and Visual Materials. An earlier two linear foot collection came to the library in 1996. Due to the size of the accessions following the program's discontinuance, the older records were absorbed to make one holistic record group. Yearly classes are known by several names throughout the papers. The two most commonly used classifications are by the year the class entered Inteflex and also by the year of graduation from the Medical School. Classes may also be known by their status in the program, such as I4 meaning the student is in the fourth year of Inteflex. To create the least confusion possible, classes within the finding aid are filed under the Medical School graduation year.
