Developed to challenge our students and help them to mature cognitively and professionally, the University of Michigan Medical School curriculum is presented in sequences and modules that integrate biomedical sciences, clinical sciences, social/behavioral sciences and patient care skills. The first- and second-years, which are referred to as Components I/II, are focused on establishing the humanistic and basic science knowledge required for foundational medical practice. The third- and fourth-years, which are referred to as Components III/IV, are clinically-based inpatient and outpatient experiences in which students assume increasing patient care responsibility under faculty supervision.
The Curriculum Support unit is responsible for providing higher-level administrative expertise and assistance to faculty, staff, and students engaged in the basic science activities of Components I/II and clinical experiences of Components III/IV. This support extends to organ system sequences, the Family Centered Experience program, Clinical Foundations of Medicine, Seminars in Medicine, third- and fourth-year clinical clerkships, and class orientations and includes scheduling seminars, classes, meetings and events, scheduling facilities, planning and administering events, duplication and distribution of syllabi, preparation of student handbooks, maintenance of the Med Student Portal, tracking attendance at required events, and supporting the Directors/Assistant Directors of Components I /II and Components III/IV.
