At the current time, we are soliciting topics to be included in the new curriculum. If you wish to have a topic considered, please submit the following information (five-to-ten pages). Submission should include proposals for teaching throughout all four years of the curriculum and list all appropriate clinical and basic teachers in collaboration. The initial proposal should not have overwhelming detail but should indicate the overall direction and approach. We are looking for both breadth and depth in exploration of the topic. We encourage you to work together across disciplines and across institutions to generate your proposal integrating both basic and clinical science.
