Curriculum redesign highlights:

  • COVID-19:  Course designed to appreciate multiple vantage points of disaster preparedness and to enhance knowledge and potentially increase student’s ability to assist if needed.
  • Knowledge in Clinical Clerkships (KICC) start: During this period each clerkship will deliver essential core content with clinical application. 
  • Weekend days off:  These days have been highlighted to indicate that there are no clinical duties assigned during these days.
  • Campus Connection Days (CC): These are designed to promote wellness and self-care time.  Students will not have any mandatory curricular requirements during CC days.
