Curriculum Inventory 1.1 Now Open to All Schools
On Dec. 17, 2013, the Curriculum Inventory became available to all AAMC member schools to upload their curriculum data. Following a pilot of Version 1 of the Curriculum Inventory, which included the participation of about 30 schools, the enhanced Version 1.1 will bring the AAMC and medical education into a new era of benchmarking, medical education research, and responding to requests for information from legislators and the media.
Schools' Curriculum Deans and Primary CI Administrators (as reported to us in a survey conducted in Summer/Fall 2013) received an e-mail on Mon., Dec. 16, with detailed information about how to access the Curriculum Inventory. As we announced a few weeks ago, the deadline for submissions for Academic Year 2012-2013 is Feb. 10, 2014.
If your institution partners with a curriculum management system vendor, those that are working with the AAMC , as well as developers from many medical schools, have been perfecting their export processes and testing uploads for several weeks and should be ready to upload data for you. The Dec. 16 e-mail to Curriculum Deans and Primary CI Admins provided instructions on what needs to be done in the CI School Portal to facilitate this upload.
If you are a Curriculum Dean or Primary CI Admin at your institution, and you do not receive an e-mail from us regarding your access to the Curriculum Inventory, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can confirm the information we have on record for your school.
