Sub Committees & Working Groups

Several sub-committees which report to MDCPC are responsible for curricular management and evaluation.

The MD Curriculum and Program Committee delegates responsibility for aspects of the program to several standing sub-committees. These sub-committees, along with the MDCPC, oversee the curriculum as a whole and have responsibility for the overall design, management, integration, evaluation, and enhancement of a coherent and coordinated medical curriculum.
