Roles and Responsibilities for Phase 2 Clerkship Directors

The Illinois Medicine Curriculum is an integrated organ segment curriculum. The curriculum focuses on integrating the basic sciences with clinical science; integrating principles of health systems science, professional development with foundational principles and clinical science.

In autumn of 2017, the three campuses that make up UICOM (Chicago, Peoria, & Rockford) worked towards creating a comparable curriculum across the campuses to meet LCME standards. This has led to the development of cross-campus curriculum development with emphasis on local implementation of a shared curriculum. The latter requires close collaboration and communication between the local design / delivery faculty and the college-wide content development team.

The Phase 2 curriculum is organized into core clerkships.  A clerkship director is responsible for cross-campus collaboration and development of the curriculum.
