The office of Medical Education will be updating the medical student curriculum by merging two “threads” that had been woven throughout the four years of the students’ education.

The Culturally Effective Medicine thread and the Medicine and Society thread will be combined into the Culture, Health, Equity and Society thread, with Rita Lee, MD, associate professor of medicine, and Paritosh Kaul, MD, associate professor of pediatrics, as co-directors.

The opportunity to strengthen aspects of our curriculum that focus on culturally effective medicine, disparities, health care systems and access, and health care costs were identified by task force work done in preparation for the re-accrediting process by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education.
