In phase II of the curriculum redesign effort, our goal is to define the “what” of the new curriculum: what elements or features need to be in the new curriculum to enable us to achieve the goals in our “why.”
We formed four workgroups, inviting a wide range of individuals to participate. We’ve included a diverse group of stakeholders including faculty (from both clinical and basic science departments), education staff, residents, and students. All workgroup meetings are led by skilled facilitators involved in the Curriculum Redesign Steering Committee (CRSC), with the goal of generating a wide range of ideas.
Workgroup meetings began in early October, and all workgroups completed six meetings by December 2018. The idea generation has been nothing short of inspiring, with dozens of rich and thoughtful contributions.
