CI Website Update
We hope our new navigation panel has improved your experience with the CIR website. If you are have problems finding information, please send questions, comments, and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Curriculum Reports page is being redesigned to make it easier to search for and access reports, and we are beginning the process of updating all existing CI Reports based on LCME Annual Questionnaire Part II with 2014-2015 data. We are excited to be adding new charts related to medical school admissions processes, number of scheduled hours per week, and quality assurance related to accreditation. Check back often for updates!
