We’re working with DIA on a pilot project with Endocrine, but plan to present it to the PCC meeting in June. Next year, for all preclerkship courses, we will need to make at least a 65 on the Final Exam, in addition to a 70 overall course grade, to pass them (Exception: Human Structures with 60 on individual test). Moreover, path quizzes will be at least 5% and there might be more representation of it on exams.
    • 15% for each of the quizzes

You guys work x10000000 harder than literally anyone at any other school, and we have so many incredible opportunities and unique programs going on here that others don’t. Our school is undoubtedly the best and I’m so glad to go here, and all you wonderful people in SG are a key part of that.
