As mentioned above, the content of the Model Curriculum is based on the Istanbul Protocol and a number of manuals and resources that were subsequently developed by Istanbul Protocol authors and editors, and their colleagues, to supplement the Istanbul Protocol, including extensive training materials developed by the IRCT and partner organisations, the Human Rights Foundation of Turkey (HRFT) and Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) for the Prevention through Documentation (PtD) Project. Selected materials were excerpted and adapted from these resources to develop a comprehensive curriculum for health professionals in the course of their training. The primary resources used for the development of the Model Curriculum include:

Each Module contains a list of the primary resources used for its development. It is important to note that clinicians who conduct forensic medical evaluations of alleged victims of torture and ill-treatment should be familiar with the entire content of the Istanbul Protocol, especially if they refer to the application of Istanbul Protocol standards in their medico-legal report(s).
