MDCC Meeting Updates
1) Approval of a formal policy on doctoring and clinical site placement change requests
2) Approval for a formal policy for students to petition for a grade change and change to MSPE wording

MDCC Meeting: The MDCC meets regularly to review course/clerkship feedback, review elective applications, and discuss curriculum initiatives at AMS. During the past meeting - we reviewed the Renal and Pathology courses and approved an elective application on TBI. No clerkship was reviewed this month. The committee also reviewed the Administrative Policy Committee Report and discussed SDL small group learning initiative.
AMS, Gateways, and Public Health students gathered together Friday evening to get in the holiday spirit. With good food and even better company, we tried our hand at origami as we made gift bags for the providers at University health services. Thank you to all who came out! We look forward to hosting more social events with our colleagues down the Hill.
