Medical Curriculum Committee

The Medical Curriculum Committee is the institutional body that oversees the medical education program.  The Committee provides integrated institutional responsibility for the overall design, management, integration, evaluation and enhancement of a coherent and coordinated medical curriculum. The Committee implements needed changes to the medical education curriculum. The Committee is cognizant of national medical education priorities and requirements as established by the Association of American Medical Colleges, and the American Medical Association through the Liaison Committee on Medical Education.

The Medical Curriculum Committee is composed of a non-voting Chair who is the Senior Associate Dean for Medical Education, 15 voting members of the faculty, and a voting student member representing each class. Of the faculty members, eight are elected by the faculty and seven are appointed by the Dean. A student class representative, in good academic standing, is elected by class majority vote, and serves a three-year term.
