We launched the redesign to incorporate new content, new teaching approaches, and enhanced flexibility for our students’ experience. Curriculum redesign effort started with the very fundamental question, “why?” What does DGSOM seek to uniquely do in training future physicians:
“To empower students to become physicians committed to excellence and leaders in innovation, research, health, education, advocacy and humanistic care.”
The curriculum structure schematic is being vetted by DGSOM faculty governance and will also be reviewed by LCME, but here are some key features:
No, the curriculum redesign will have no impact on the admission competencies for the class entering in 2020.
No, the tuition structure remains the same for the class of 2020.
Phased implementation is planned for the Class of 2020 and full implementation of the redesign with the class of 2021. Classes begin the first week of August.
