  1. CPESA Report – Phuong Huynh

Provided an update of curriculum mapping. Would like to have all courses mapped by May 26 in order to provide everyone a working dashboard at the June 13 retreat. 

  1. Phase 3 Update – Christopher Giordano (34:00)
    Provided the structure of Phase 3, scheduling and electives. Treat Phase 3 as a capstone. Discussed electives being sunset due to lack of interest by students after a 3-year timeframe. Committee approved to have the Phase 3 Director keep track if students selected certain electives or not for a 3-year time, contact electives director and then decide whether to sunset or not. If not sunset after 3 years, then wait another 2 years (5 years total) to sunset the elective permanently. Addressed Transition to Residency ACLS/PALS/BLS and whether the students need to do this before (or during) clerkship years. Committee did not think this should become a graduation requirement so COM will no longer provide it beginning with the class of 2024. Advanced Clinical Practice Selective – approved moving the CSE4 from beginning of each subinternship rotation to Transition to Residency course.
