The faculty committee with primary responsibility for the curriculum is the Executive Oversight Committee (EOC). As a standing Dean’s Committee, the source of the authority of the EOC is the Dean of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS).
The EOC is responsible for oversight of all changes to the program curriculum. The EOC accomplishes its work in coordination with a group of subcommittees, each of which derives its authority from the EOC. They include the Curriculum and Policy Subcommittee (CaPS), the Course Directors Subcommittee (CDS), the Clinical Curriculum Subcommittee (CCS), the Research Subcommittee (RS), the Elective Subcommittee (ES), Student Affairs Subcommittee (SAS) and the Assessment and Evaluation Subcommittee (AES).
The Executive Oversight Committee has the authority to: set medical education program objectives; establish educational requirements; establish and approve curricular and assessment content; ensure content integration, coordination and coherence; evaluate educational outcomes; and review/approve all policies related to curricular and student affairs.
