CCAP Subcommittees and Tasks Forces

Standing Subcommittees

Preclerkship Course Directors' Committee

The Preclerkship Course Directors’ (PCD) Committee is a standing subcommittee of the Committee on Curriculum and Academic Policy and is chaired by the Assistant Dean for Preclerkship Education.

PCD oversees the required preclerkship curriculum and develops best practices for curriculum implementation; reviews curriculum and course data including evaluations, outcomes, and assessment; plans course scheduling; and engages in continuous quality improvement to ensure integration and innovation throughout the preclerkship phase of the curriculum. In addition, the committee offers development and training to the faculty and medical student teaching assistants in the required preclerkship curriculum. 

PCD can recommend academic and curriculum policy changes to CCAP but the final determination is made by CCAP.

PCD meets monthly and is comprised of core teaching faculty within the required preclerkship curriculum and members of the administrative staff and medical students are invited to participate as necessary.
