The course director is the principal interface between departmental faculty and the School of Medicine Curriculum Committee. The course director has the responsibility to evaluate faculty in the course to ensure students are receiving high-quality educational experiences and that school and Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) guidelines are followed.
A course director is expected to provide guidance to teaching faculty in the course with respect to organization, a correlation between the rigor of instruction and the level of educational development of students, and appropriateness of examination material prepared by the faculty. The course director may be asked to provide a formal evaluation of the teaching activities of participating faculty to the SOM administration and departmental chairperson upon request.
