The Office of Curriculum and Assessment (OCA) is located in the Offices for Medical Education in the School of Medicine and Dentistry. The Office’s primary roles are:
- Facilitate implementation and innovation in the curriculum for the MD degree;
- Evaluate the MD program curriculum; and
- Conduct assessment and research on the impact of curricular change.
The Office is led by two directors, one focusing on curriculum implementation and innovation and the other focusing on evaluation and research. Operations of the OCA are facilitated by the administrator who, in addition to overseeing support staff, has primary responsibility for curriculum management. The OCA, through its directors, reports directly to the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Medical Education.
