  1. Updates:


  • Novak and Dr. Cooper presented the official class of 2019 NBME Step 1 score data. Jim Gorske approaches students proactively, providing tutors/buddies and targeting students who are in need.
  • Motion made to approve February minutes, seconded, approved unanimously.
  • Aris noted that the Phase 1 curriculum is going well. One concern brought forward is the situation of when a student has a conference presentation on the same day of the exam and is requesting accommodation for the absence. Dr. Novak suggested that this be a topic to discuss at the Course Directors Committee Meeting.

  • Novak opened a discussion regarding the presented article.


  1. EPA Discussion
  • Hatch provided an update from the Clerkship Directors Retreat. The main topic for the retreat focused on using LCME provided EPAs. Main discussions included how students should come to third year clerkships and how to remediate identified deficiencies and gaps. Different clerkships have EPAs that they deem to be of higher importance for students to get for their methods. The suggestion has been made to tie EPA assessment into the existing CSE4.
  • Novak opened the floor to discussion regarding EPAs and entrustability.


  1. Announcements
