CURRICULUM COMMITTEE MEMBERSHIP:  The Committee is comprised of a minimum of six and no more than nine at-large faculty members and two student members. Term for at-large faculty is three years, with one consecutive renewal. Three at-large members are elected from the general medical faculty by the School of Medicine representatives of the Faculty Senate to assure direct faculty participation and a broad faculty perspective to the decision-making process, independent of departmental or central administration points of view. The remaining at-large faculty members are selected for their sustained interest and activity in medical education and for their independent points of view. The at-large faculty members should include a Generalist Physician and a Basic Scientist. Of the two student members, one shall be a representative of the Mulholland Society and one of the Student Medical Education Committee. The remaining members of the committee are members by virtue of their position:


Associate Dean for Undergraduate Medical Education (Chair)
Assistant Dean for Clinical Skills Education
Clinical Performance Development Director
Chair, Pre-clerkship Committee*
Chair, Clerkship/Post-clerkship Committee*
Chair, Thread Leaders Committee*

All Committee members are expected to contribute to the Committee's activities; attend at least 2/3 of regular meetings.

The members elected from the General Faculty should have a demonstrated interest in undergraduate medical education and be willing and able to serve on the Curriculum Committee. Regular meetings are scheduled for the first and third Thursdays of each month. Meeting minutes are posted on the public Curriculum web site and sent directly to members and the Dean’s office.
