Curriculum

The Office of Educational Programs (OEP) provides general administrative oversight and management for all aspects of the undergraduate medical education curriculum.  This includes supporting the Curriculum Committee and its associated subcommittees, administering several interdepartmental courses and fourth-year clinical selectives, managing the standardized patient program and the administration of the Comprehensive Clinical Competency Examination at the end of the third year, as well as several student programs, including Pre-Entry, the Summer Research Program, and the Scholarly Concentrations program.  The OEP monitors student performance outcomes to measure the efficacy of the curriculum, including student performance on national examinations and performance in residency training programs.
