- A copy of the report to the Dean, "The New Clinical Information
System: It's Effect on Students and Medical Education" was distributed.
The Curriculum Committee asked Dr. Short to prepare a letter to Health
Systems Administration requesting their cooperation in realizing the
potential for medical education with the Integrated Information
- A revised draft copy of "Goals 2000 - Short Term Steps to a 2020
Curriculum of Excellence" was distributed. The report includes the
goals and objectives for management of the curriculum and 13 tentative
proposals for academic year 2000. A vigorous discussion ensued as the
committee worked to understand the nature of the proposals.
Committee members were asked to study this document and prioritize
the proposals for 2000 by both importance to the educational mission of
the school and by ease of implementation. Consideration must be given
to the inter-related or interdependent nature of several of the
proposals and to the feasibility of short term versus long term
projects. In addition, consider that certain short term, immediate
steps can be taken with further changes to follow if developments
We hope to make the proposal available for general review next
Steve Meixel spoke to proposal #8. The CCRC has met with the course
directors involved (DPI, Phys Dx, Ethics, ICM, Human Behavior,
Epidemiology)and they expressed a willingness to integrate their
courses around a Practice of Medicine course. This integration would
occur in conjunction with a reduction in the amount of lecture time.
Integration is an issue of content not scheduling. The CCRC efforts
were endorsed and Dr. Meixel was asked by the committee to continue
work on this project.
