Committee Composition

The committee consists of seven faculty members elected by the Faculty Assembly, the Basic Science coordinator, the Associate Dean for Education, one student from each of the second, third, and fourth year classes, the Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs as ex officio (voting) member, the Director of Curriculum and Instruction as an ex-officio (non-voting) member, and a member of the library faculty selected by the Health Science Center library as a non-voting member. The Committee elects the chairperson and vice chairperson from among the members. The vice chairperson will become chairperson upon completion of the chairperson’s term.

Standing Committee Charge

As stated in the Constitution and Bylaws, it is the responsibility of the committee to evaluate, revise, and recommend policies to implement the pre-doctoral curriculum. As dean, I have empowered the committee to oversee all pre-doctoral curricular issues in the college.

Additional Charge from the Dean for 2013–2014

I am requesting that the Curriculum Committee or ad hoc groups established by this committee accomplish a number of important activities this year. The following activities should be grounded in student learning outcomes and can be addressed during the recommended time period:

  1. Participate in the Accreditation Self-Study including a review of current competency certifications.
  2. Develop a detailed curriculum revision plan and timeline.
  3. Appoint a “Student Assessment Workgroup” that aligns with the curriculum revision efforts.
  4. Develop a “completed cases” clinical education grading model.
  5. Complete evaluation of rotations and develop recommendations.
  6. Finalize grading criteria for the Professionalism Stream Courses to include the faculty (TEAM leaders and Clinical Course Directors) review of the student performance.

Ongoing

  1. Employ adult learning teaching and assessment priciples including a greater emphasis on active learning strategies in and out of the classroom.
  2. Continue to monitor Community-Based Program rotations and evaluations and review for any further action items.
  3. Produce an annual report of committee activities and accomplishments.
  4. Monitor proposed centralization of educational technology and support at the HSC IT services and identify potential integration of emerging UF technology resources, i.e. E-Learning, portfolios, etc.
  5. Recommend potential programs for consideration by the Faculty Development Committee.

Each standing faculty committee is charged with reviewing relevant outcome measures from the college’s strategic plan. The measures which should be reviewed by the Curriculum Committee in 2013-2014 include:

  • D.M.D. students’ first time pass rate on NBDE Parts I and II
  • D.M.D. students’ pass rate on Florida licensure exam
  • DMD student confidence in 20 clinical competencies upon graduation (senior survey)
  • Alumni periodic survey (2017-18)
  • First time competency pass rate.
  • DMD ADEA Senior Survey.
  • Student satisfaction (Senior Exit Interviews).
  • Number of DMD students accepted/applied to advanced education programs.
  • Proportion of classroom clock hours in evidence-based practice and critical thinking/active learning.

Individual Faculty Member Responsibilities

The Curriculum Committee meets twice per month on the 1st Thursday and 3rd of the month from 5:15–6:30 p.m. Committee members are also expected to participate in any annual retreats of the Curriculum Committee or joint meetings with other standing committees. Work required outside of the meeting varies but includes review of course syllabi, course proposals, curriculum review, etc.

Time commitment: Minimum of 4 hours per month for meetings along with 1 retreat per year. Preparation time for meetings will vary.

Schedule of Meetings

Unless otherwise noted, Curriculum Committee Meeting business begins at 5:15 p.m.
