New Curriculum & Academic Calendar

NEOMED’s curriculum and academic calendar is transforming! Learn more about the transition.

Curriculum Blueprint Details

The College of Medicine curriculum is undergoing a transformation. The transformation will provide better opportunities for interprofessional training of students, and encourage faculty to explore and integrate new technology and pedagogical methods that enhance content delivery and student engagement.

In addition, the academic calendar will be replaced with a new calendar that has 16-week semesters, a summer semester and a “Maymester” term. The summer semester will start the new academic year.

The complete transition will occur over a period of several years.
