The Medical Education Committee (MEC) is charged with overseeing the functioning of its subcommittees, ad-hoc task forces, and activities concerned with the undergraduate medical education curriculum and the components thereof.  

The MEC has primary responsibility for curricular planning and oversight. In addition, the MEC serves as an information clearinghouse by which the UASOM faculty, students, and administration are informed about curricular and educational activities at all four campuses and elsewhere.  Recommendations generated by the MEC subcommittees must be forwarded to the MEC for review before being forwarded to the Senior Associate Dean for Medical Education and to the UASOM Dean for final approval and implementation. The MEC can appoint task forces to investigate particular issues, and, on the basis of information provided by a task force, recommendations to the Senior Associate Dean for Medical Education and Dean may be made.

The MEC currently meets at 12:00 p.m. on the 2nd Tuesday of each month in Volker Hall 302, and the MEC Executive Committee meets at 12:00 p.m. on the 1st Tuesday of these months in Volker Hall 301A. Participants from Huntsville, Montgomery and Tuscaloosa may participate via videoconferencing. For additional information, contact Fatrina Pierce at 205-934-3826.

MEC meeting minutes are posted to the publicly accessible School of Medicine MEC website following each meeting.  

Members-only information for working committees and task forces is posted to the password-protected MEC SharePoint site:  MEC SharePoint Web Site for MEC Members Only (Blazer ID)
