This presentation emphasizes the importance of concept generation in the undergraduate medical education.
It is primarily based on molecular genetic advances. It is implicated in the understanding of various normal
human biomolecular activities based on the intrinsic molecular integration and unification of diverse
biomolecular activities to provide best possible service for the survival of human being. Disruption of
these molecular integration pathways results in various disease manifestations. The concept generation
should form the basic foundation in surgical pathology teaching in the undergraduate medical education
without which it remains a disjointed discourse.We have highlighted the process of concept generation and
presented few examples and we aim to stimulate medical graduates to generate their own concepts based
on their own observations. They should be able to integrate various associations with future molecular
advances to enhance their understanding and improved clinical outcome as most treatment in near future
will be based on molecular basis.

Keywords: Concept generation, Integration, Concept mapping, Connections, Medical education, Narrative in medicine.
