The manuscript reviews various methods of Integration (Temporal co-ordination, Sharing, Nesting and Co-relation) as recommended in the revised curriculum of Undergraduate Competency Based Medical Education (CBME) from 2019 academic session onwards. A brief description of these methods and recommended frameworks for planning such integration sessions are suggested. Medical colleges can plan and place integration of contents across various phases of curriculum on the basis of suggested frameworks, depending on factors like the targeted areas of integration, views and experience of teachers, organisational structure and course outcomes.
