Medical Academic Performance Services (MedAPS)

MedAPS will offer tools to help member medical schools assess their achievement of education and accreditation standards.

Curriculum Inventory and Reports (CIR)

Curriculum Inventory and Reports (CIR), part of the AAMC's Medical Academic Performance Services (MedAPS) initiative, is designed to serve as the premier benchmarking and reporting tool on content, structure, delivery, and assessment of medical school curricula.

Curriculum Inventory and Reports (CIR) is one of three new services affiliated with the Medical Academic Performance Services (MedAPS) initiative at the AAMC. 

  • The Curriculum Inventory serves as the centralized database of AAMC-member medical school curricula, including content, structure, delivery, and assessment in the U.S. and Canada.
  • Curriculum Reports provide graphical interpretations of both aggregate and historical curriculum-related data that:
  • assist in curriculum benchmarking and continuous quality improvement;
  • provide resources to curriculum committees and faculty;
  • enhance medical education research; and
  • inform legislators and the general public.
