The Vanderbilt University School of Medicine faculty values students' perspectives on their education, and its members invite students to take an active role in shaping the VUSM curriculum. The Student Curriculum Committee (SCC) is the official body through which medical students can provide feedback to course instructors, voice opinions about their medical education, and effect changes to the VUSM curriculum.
The Student Curriculum Committee reports to the Undergraduate Medical Education Executive Committee (UMEC), the VUSM committee that has primary responsibility for planning and maintaining the medical school curriculum. The Undergraduate Medical Education Executive Committee takes students' opinions very seriously and values their input. If you are interested in learning more about how students’ input is incorporated in the work of UMEC, speak with your classmates who serve on the Student Curriculum Committee.
