UT Medical School – Houston (UTMSH)
As a member of the A-PRIME TIME partnership, UTMSH will help develop an innovative model of accelerated physician education that is more effective,
more efficient, less costly and widely recognized for the professionalism of its graduates. Close collaboration is planned so that there is a smooth,
efficient, synergistic and transparent introduction of innovative educational activities into the curriculum of each institution. Appropriate
assessments, including humanities and ethics effectiveness, research, and other scholarship studies will also be planned.
An undergraduate competency-based curriculum will be designed that when completed will meet medical school entry and matriculation requirements.
The design of selected undergraduate courses will allow students to achieve specified competencies in the basic, behavioral and social sciences.
To accomplish this, UTMSH and UTMB will establish a joint Advisory Committee who, with the academic institutions, will:
- Compile a list of competencies that when met would qualify selected students for advanced medical school placement
- Determine the most effective and efficient strategies to deliver medical and other health related course content to supplement on-site instruction
- Identify or create team-based, problem based and case-based learning modules to demonstrate the relevance of course content and promote
- Select basic science courses to implement course delivery and competency assessment
