UGME Curriculum Refresh

Part of ensuring a world-class education is ongoing review, evaluation and as-needed modification of the curriculum based on emerging trends in medicine and medical education, as well as our annual evaluations.

To this end, a Curriculum Refresh Committee (CRC) has been formed to assess the strengths and gaps/areas of improvement in our undergraduate medical education program. The CRC will make recommendations to the Undergraduate Medical Education Curriculum Committee (UMECC) to ensure students receive the most effective and relevant curriculum for the practice of medicine. This refresh is slated to be implemented by August 2022.

The development and delivery of an undergraduate medical curriculum is a far-reaching and complex system with many stakeholders. The input of faculty, residents, students, staff, and the community will be critical to the success of this refresh. The refreshed curriculum will draw upon established best practices in medical education and practice, both at the national and international levels, and your input will provide invaluable insight for the future of medical education at Dalhousie University.
