Curriculum Governance

The School of Medicine curriculum committee structure (see below) includes the Committee on Curriculum and Educational Policy (CCEP), an Executive Committee, a Student Committee, and four subcommittees. Each subcommittee performs a specific function within the curriculum or oversees one element of the curriculum. In addition to the subcommittees, the work, as it relates to the curriculum, of the Associate Dean for Students, Associate Dean for Assessment and Professional Standards and the Associate Dean for Medical Education is informed by the Associate Deans’ Advisory Boards as indicated below in the diagram. Student representatives are members of all subcommittees and advisory boards.
