Step scores and failures contribute to the level of success students have in medical school and possible predictors have been recognized for intervention purposes.

Doctors Aris, Hagen, Sayeski, Norton, Beal, and Jim Gorske, volunteered to head up the task force and report back to the committee in November. Dr. Novak suggested that a student also be added to the task force.

  1. Policy Change: NBME Clerkships Shelf Exams (Vidaurreta)
  • Vidaurreta presented the proposed policy change for students who fail a shelf exam must meet with the Assistant Dean of Medical Education to discuss performance. Students who perform two standard deviations below the national mean, will be required to meet with the learning specialist. Motion made to approve the policy change, seconded, approved unanimously.


  1. Peer Teaching

The proposal is designed to have the students Implement biannual lecture style meetings where upperclassmen could provide information or mentor newer classes.
