The Office of Undergraduate Medical Education (UME) provides assistance to course and clerkship directors, faculty, and students in the School of Medicine curriculum and is charged with implementation of the curriculum and curriculum requirements as approved by the curriculum committee.
Curriculum Overview and Schedules
The Medical Education Committee (MEC) is designed to assure faculty representation from various academic disciplines and student representation from different levels in the medical education process across all campuses to review the curriculum and its various components. The MEC is primarily responsible for overseeing courses and clerkships, for monitoring program implementation, and for assisting in program evaluation. Faculty and student feedback and participation in the curriculum is encouraged. Course and clerkship directors as well as others engaged in teaching medical students have a vital role in the curriculum. Course and clerkship director groups serve as advisory and implementation groups to the MEC and implement the curriculum in conjunction with support from the Office of Undergraduate Medical Education (UME).
