The College of Medicine is currently undergoing a comprehensive review, analysis and revision of the four-year medical school curriculum. The COM Educational Policy Committee, responsible for centralized oversight of curriculum, has convened a special task force to facilitate the development of an integrative curriculum to better prepare physicians for practice in the 21st century. The curriculum initiative will build upon the underlying strengths of the current educational program, identify and improve weak or neglected domains, and bridge the gaps that exist in the current curriculum content and structure.
The Curriculum Analysis and Revision Taskforce (CART) is committed to creating a shared vision for the future of medical education at UC. The task force firmly believes that successful development and implementation of a revised curriculum will require faculty, students and staff to be fully engaged and participative in the process, with key ideas communicated and discussed within the COM.
To learn more about the medical education curriculum analysis and revision process at UC COM, you are invited to attend one of the Town Hall meetings scheduled for March 30, 2010 from noon to 1 p.m. or 5:30-6:30 p.m. located in the Medical Science Building, Room 5051.
