Student Evaluation and Promotion Committee

The Student Evaluation and Promotion Committee represents the faculty in making recommendations to the Dean regarding each student's continued enrollment and/or academic progress in the School of Medicine, including continuation, promotion to the next academic year, additional educational activities and support, suspension, dismissal, or any variation thereof that in the opinion of the committee is appropriate.

This committee consists of seven voting members: four elected and three ex officio (the M1 and M2 Academic Year Directors plus the Assistant Dean for Clinical Clerkship Education). Elected members serve for a term of three years with nominations coming from the Faculty Representation Committee. There are four additional ex officio members who are non-voting (including the Associate Dean for Education, the Associate Dean for Student Affairs, the Manager of Student Affairs, and the Director of Assessment & Academic Effectiveness).

This committee meets twice every month, or as needed.
