- Review of summer events
- a) PoM - The PoM course is off to a good start. Comments
from students and faculty have been positive.
- b) Teaching Space - When/if the purchase of the Genesis
building is completed, allocation for temporary teaching space for the
Medical School will be requested. The Genesis space would help
alleviate room scheduling difficulties until a new education building
is constructed. The new medical education building has now been listed
(#4) on the University Construction Planning Project List.
- c) BOV meeting - Dean Carey will be giving a presentation on
medical education to the Board of Visitors in September.
- d) Clinical Connections pilot - Reid Adams updated the
Committee on the first Clinical Connections program to be held on
9/25/00. A copy of the Clinical Connections overview, proposed budget,
initial letter to the students, introduction and instructions, 9/25/00
agenda, and case studies was distributed. The case presentation
material will be sent to the students approximately two weeks prior to
the program, giving the students time to discuss the cases among their
groups (either by phone or e-mail) and be prepared to discuss the case
at the beginning of the Clinical Connections program.

- c) Clinical medicine year 3/4 options - The Curriculum Committee
must assess the 3rd and 4th years of medical school (now the "clinical"
and "elective" years). The Clinical Medicine Committee will be asked to
define the knowledge, skill and attitudinal expectations for the
clerkships and electives. The Curriculum and Clinical Medicine
committees will then assess the degree with which we currently meet
these expectations and based on this assessment, determine what action
needs to be taken.
The Electives Board, represented on the Clinical Medicine Committee by
Dr. Margaret Mohrmann, began preliminary studies of the electives
program this summer and will report to us next week.
The documents Competencies Required of the Contemporary
Physician, Guidelines for Curriculum Development,
Expectations for the Curriculum, and Criteria For Curricular Design,
Implementation and Evaluation will be distributed to all course
directors. The directors will be asked to provide these guides to the
educational effort to their faculty.
- d) Planning must begin for the "Exploratory" program with possible
pilot implementation in 2001-2002 with full program in 2002-2003.
- Clerkship Calendar - A draft of the 2001-02 clerkship
calendar was distributed to the Committee.
