  1. Medical Education Building. The Committee was updated on progress in the development and planning phase for a School of Medicine education building.

  2. PoM-2. Brian Wispelwey outlined the proposed changes to PoM-2 for the Academic Year 2001-2001 (See below). The proposals include increased instruction in physical examination skills, continuing the progress of PoM-1 and incorporation of the second year preceptorship into the PoM-2 experience. He proposed a physician clinical mentor for all 2nd year students and an increase in the weekly tutorial session time from two to three hours.

    Increase instruction on physical examination skills continuing the progress of PoM-1. The skills should be practiced and enhanced as PoM-2 progresses.

    The second year preceptorship should be incorporated into PoM-2 as a required part of the PoM-2 experience.

    Case breadth should be broadened. The use of radiology images, ECG tracings, and microscopic and other clinical images is encouraged whenever possible.

  3.  Nelle Linz was introduced as the new Mulholland President and student representative on the Curriculum Committee. Also introduced was her guest, David Shonka, class of 2004.
