Curriculum Implementation - We actively participate in curriculum implementation through collaborations with Academic Program Committees (APC), educational leadership, faculty and students. We support APC curriculum committees, the Executive Curriculum Committee and related committees to coordinate and manage student and faculty schedules to assure curriculum and instruction occur as planned. We provide opportunities for members of the university community by recruiting alumni and community physicians to support the College of Medicine programs. Innovation and continuous improvement are guiding principles in curriculum management and implementation.
Assessment and Evaluation- We consult and advise program personnel, faculty, and administrators on matters involving educational measurement, standard setting, test administration, performance assessment, and methods for the evaluation of instructors and courses. We administer, score and report results of written and computerized examinations to faculty, students, and administrators. We also serve as the liaison to the National Board of Medical Examiners by communicating Board issues, facilitating enrollment for Board exams, and processing and reporting Board exam results.
