OUR CURRENT EFFORTS TO REVISE THE CURRICULUM
Last year, the Curriculum Reform Committee worked on designing a multidisciplinary conference for first and second year medical students on abortion and contraception. There was a basic science component that was designed to highlight the biochemistry of RU-486. A clinician from the Ob/Gyn department was asked to speak on reproductive health in general, and specifically surgical abortion and contraception. Also, a component was to include a discussion of the ethical issues involved in providing or referring individuals for terminations, during the pre-clinical Introduction To The Patient course at the Medical School. We are working with the administration to try and implement this or a similar MDC in the upcoming year.
