Committee on Curriculum and Academic Policy (CCAP)
The Committee on Curriculum and Academic Policy (CCAP), a standing committee of the School of Medicine Faculty Senate, is chaired by Daniel Bernstein, MD, Associate Dean for Curriculum and Student Scholarship.
CCAP develops or recommends policies concerning the curriculum for the MD degree program, including the structure of the curriculum and requirements for graduation, design and evaluation of courses and clerkships, adherence to Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) guidelines, and evaluation of program effectiveness. In addition, CCAP oversees the assessment of medical student academic performance in required courses, clerkships, and scholarly concentrations. CCAP advises and recommends to the Faculty Senate changes in academic policy that affect performance assessment and advising, and also reviews and advises the Dean’s Office on the format and content of the Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE, a.k.a. the Deans’ Letter). CCAP also reviews and approves requests for new required courses and clerkships (core and selective). Requests for elective courses and clerkships are reviewed and approved by the Chair of CCAP.
Along with the Dean and the Executive Committee of the School of Medicine, CCAP is responsible for implementing those policies adopted by CCAP and, when necessary, endorsed by the SOM Faculty Senate.
CCAP works closely with faculty and staff in Educational Programs and Services and with the Stanford Medical Student Association, to develop, communicate, and assess curriculum and policies in the MD program. CCAP establishes standing or ad hoc advisory subcommittees or task forces to study particular issues, and welcomes input and participation from interested faculty, students, and staff.
