- Core Educators: Core Science Lead, Core Clinical Lead, Pathway/Research/IPE Lead, LOM faculty representation, CMC faculty representation,
- General Faculty

- Student Representatives: 2 from each class (MS1, MS2, MS3, and MS4)
The Curriculum Committee (CC) holds sole authority and responsibility for creating, overseeing and managing the medical student education program, and ensuring compliance with all LCME accreditation standards. The Committee defines objectives and competencies, determines curricular content, pedagogy and methods of teaching, reviews feedback and recommendations, and utilizes information to improve the curriculum. Committee membership comprises basic science and clinical teaching faculty, evaluation and assessment experts and students, who are invited to participate in discussions about curricular issues. Due to the significant time commitments this Committee demands of its members, student attendance requirements are modified to accommodate their educational commitments.
Subcommittees that report to the Curriculum Committee welcome student participation and input.
Phase 1-2 Subcommittee: The authority and responsibility for the administration of the pre-clerkship curriculum as approved byt the CC.
Phase 3 Subcommittee: Oversees developments and implementation of the Phase 3 curriculum including clinical clerkships. Includes oversight of curriculum content, integration of core curricular elements, instructionals methods, student assessments, faculty development, and curriculum delivery.
