The Independent Studies Program was initiated at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine during the early months of 1987, and it has achieved continued success and acceptance from the administration, faculty, and students. The program emphasizes competence as the constant within a relatively time-independent framework. This paper presents, in a longitudinal fashion, the Independent Studies Program as a program model that combines criterion-referencing concepts, mastery-based learning combinations, and self-learning strategies. As a result, students have taken the initiative for diagnosing their learning needs, formulating their learning goals, identifying their human and material resources, and evaluating their learning outcomes.
