Curricular Design Subcommittee

The key tasks of the Curricular Design Subcommittee are to provide guidance on pre-clerkship course strengths and growth/realignment opportunities with attention to: Lead/Director vision, course evaluations/feedback, student learning, course objectives, 3RC pedagogical philosophy, global architecture of the Foundations phase (MS1/MS2), and how the Foundations phase complements the 3RC curriculum (MS1-4) as a whole. The areas of responsibility span pre-clerkship courses as well as integration of basic sciences content across the 3RC curriculum.

The Curricular Design Subcommittee is comprised of School of Medicine faculty members, including both clinicians and basic scientists.
