What is the Academic Performance Committee (APC)?

Course and clerkship chairs for various curricular segments constitute Academic Performance Committees to monitor student performance, assist students with academic and professional issues, and recommend promotions. The identified APC report to the Committee on Academic Standing Progress and Promotion (CASPP) and are responsible for developing individualized remediation plans for students with deficiencies in meeting academic performance, professionalism, or technical standards set forth by DGSOM.

The current committees are listed below and the Chair for each is appointed by the Vice Dean for Education.

  • Foundations Progress Review

  • Core Clerkships Progress Review

  • Discovery/LCE Progress Review

  • Advanced Electives Progress Review
