The AEC office is responsible to manage all curricular content and is the only entity able to properly assess and support change requests and determine the impact any new or modifications to existing content may have on the existing curriculum design, content, and established learning objectives.
Note that all proposals for curricular change including new or revised content, format, educational design, and sequencing must be approved by the Curriculum Content Review Committee (CCRC).

There are three types of changes that could be reviewed and approved:
Minor changes are changes that do not impact the education purpose, design, or evaluation of an existing learning activity. These changes require a timeline of one to three months of process.

Major changes impact the MD program objectives; the addition, revision or elimination of course codes; or proposed changes to the educational design of the MD Program. These changes require a timeline of six to twelve months of process.
