Curriculum Inventory and Reports (CIR)
Curriculum Inventory and Reports (CIR) is designed to serve as the premier benchmarking and reporting tool on content, structure, delivery, and assessment of medical school curricula.
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.
2015-2016 CI Upload
As of September 27, 109 US and Canadian medical schools have uploaded curricula, and 62 have verified. Thanks so much to all of you for all of your hard work to provide such a great resource for medical education benchmarking and research! Our goal continues to be 150 participating schools this year, and we are well on our way!

The October 12 agenda includes brief updates on the 2015-2016 Upload; a new resource on the CI website – a repository of medical school curriculum schematics; a review of the CI Administrators’ Group annual evaluation; review of the enhanced CI Content Report; the CI to DCI Task Force; the CI Research Group; reviews of key documentation issues; a presentation on Student Perceptions of Active Learning by Giulia Bonaminio, PhD, from the University of Kansas School of Medicine and a medical school highlight.
CI Research Group
The CI Research Group met for a day-long retreat earlier this month to review the various ways schools are entering data and the best ways to aggregate that data and begin to work with it in support of medical education research projects. Many great ideas were shared and discussed, and the group will begin to set up implementation plans over the next few months.
