Longitudinal and Integration Subcommittee

The Longitudinal and Integration Subcommittee (LIS) addresses curricular elements that are not specific to a phase as well as the integration of elements across phases (e.g. student research, quality and safety). The LIS evaluates and coordinates longitudinal curricular themes, interprofessional education, and the horizontal and vertical integration of curriculum throughout the entire timeframe of medical school. The responsibilities of the LIS are delegated by the Curriculum Management Committee and include resolving curricular areas of concern, applying CQI methodologies including root-cause analysis in developing action plans to address any issue or problem. The LIS also monitors the activities associated with the day-to-day delivery of the curriculum.
