Duties: The Education Council formulates policies and plans for all educational activities sponsored by the School of Medicine which include, but are not limited to, the undergraduate medical curriculum, graduate and postgraduate medical education, continuing medical education, and community education. The Education Council determines the objectives, general form, and content of the educational programs, and assures their quality. It may also request subordinate committees to deal with any issues related to the educational programs. The council oversees the integration of the School of Medicine faculty into the Graduate Programs, considers the roles of off-site faculty, affiliated hospitals, and community faculty in these educational endeavors, and makes recommendations regarding priorities for the use of available resources.

Authority: The Education Council has authority over all educational activities. As a matter of process, the council must submit new strategic plans or major policy revisions to the Dean’s Council for review and comment. Decisions that require the allocation of new resources must be considered by the Dean’s Council and approved by the Dean.

All terms are three years unless elected to fill a vacated seat.
