Curriculum Council Basic Science Component - Eligibility and Member Selection

Four total students will be selected by the dean to sit on the Curriculum Council Basic Science Component.

Candidates eligible to become members of the CCBS are those students currently in their first or second year (two of each will be selected) and who are in good academic standing. The chosen candidates will sit on the committee starting in late spring of their appointed year until late in the following spring.

The candidates are chosen by the interview steering committee during Interview Day and presented by way of written recommendations to the MSC President and Vice-President. The President and Vice-President take the recommendations of the Interview Steering Committee into close consideration but assess all of the candidates for the position.

Four candidates (two MS1 and two MS2) will be recommended by the President and Vice-President to the dean. A fifth candidate will be recommended as an alternate in the rare event that one of the four chosen candidates become delinquent at his/her position or can no longer fulfill his/her responsibilities for any reason.

Curriculum Council Basic Science Component - Responsibilities

The primary responsibility of a student member of the CCBS is to serve as a liaison between the Medical Student Council and the CCBS. Therefore, attendance of every representative at each monthly MSC meeting and CCBS meeting is a necessity in order to properly fulfill the position.

The CCBS representatives are responsible for reporting to the MSC regarding the progress of the committee. In the event that the committee does not meet as scheduled (once per month), the representatives are still responsibile for contacting and meeting with the committee chair to obtain an update before the next MSC meeting.The student representatives would be expected to make recommendations to the committee and express the students' perspective about the first and second year curricula.

The CCBS representative has full voting priveleges as a member of the committee and is regarded by the faculty and administration as an equal contributor to the proper functioning of the committee. Therefore, the highly recommended candidates will also be the most proactive students.

Before accepting their position, the CCBS candidates agree to attend the annual MSC Leadership Day in August as well as serve as a member of the the interview committee on the subsequent Interview Day during the following year. Both of these events will take place on a Saturday.
