working with the ASC Course Director, faculty, departments,
curriculum deans and other SOM personnel to create, implement,
evaluate, and continuously improve components of the ASC curriculum
in which they have expertise.

The ASC portion of the Trek medical student curriculum consists of
three Advanced Science Courses that are integrated together across
a semester. This required learning occurs for students between
their core clerkship experience and their USMLE Step 1 preparation

annually.

Each of the following three ASCs has a team of Course Directors at
the main campus and at the Fort Collins Branch campus to facilitate

During the ASCs, students learn advanced science concepts in the
three pillars of the Trek curriculum: Basic Medical Science,
Clinical Science, Health System Science (called Health &
Society at CUSOM). Students spend most of their ASC time in various
advanced clinical settings and about one day per week in other
learning formats, including online modules, flipped classroom
sessions, experiential learning, and project work.

The ASC Assistant Director will report directly to the Assistant
Dean for Medical Education- Post-clerkship Curriculum.
