What is curriculum management?

Curriculum management encompasses the many administrative processes and procedures involved in maintaining accurate, up-to-date information about curricular offerings.

This Web site addresses the management of curricular data for courses and clerkships offered by the 38 departments of the School of Medicine. It includes resources, tools and instructions for departmental course administrators, as well as information to assist faculty, teaching assistants, and students with processes such as initiating new courses or clerkships, modifying or retiring existing offerings, and making changes to Axess scheduling information.

  • Annual review and update of active courses in the PeopleSoft catalog database, the body of information about WHAT is taught in the School of Medicine
