It has been more than fifteen years since the last curriculum renewal occurred. During the review for the most recent LCME review of the College, opportunities were identified to better prepare today’s medical students to prepare for the future practice of medicine. These include the need for greater integration between courses and clerkships, and between material presented in the basic sciences and the clinical disciplines. As medical knowledge increases exponentially, the provider of the future will need to be well-versed in electronic information retrieval and evidence-based practice principles including biostatistics and epidemiology.
