The three pillars are attributes of physicians that we believe are necessary to produce physicians who can maximally improve the health of patients and the community today and tomorrow in a personally sustainable and satisfying manner. The new curriculum at CUSOM aims to produce graduates who can effectively lead within healthcare teams, within healthcare systems, and as change agents in the world by helping them to develop leadership skills, an ever- curious mindset, and a sustained commitment to addressing unmet health needs of others.
Leadership (created with input from curriculum reform kickoff, October 2017)
Curiosity (created with input from curriculum reform kickoff, October 2017)
Commitment (created with input from curriculum reform kickoff, October 2017)
We have assigned subcommittees to fully define the pillars of leadership, curiosity and commitment and to recommend curricular structures and content that will directly address these definitions. Further, our assessment strategies and program evaluation will be designed in the next phase to measure outcomes in each of these areas.
