News & Events: Class of 2024 Commencement

On May 18, 2024, we celebrated the graduation of 100 medical students in a memorable event at the Bren Events Center. Faculty, family and friends supported them in taking the next step of their professional journey as they took their Hippocratic Oath. We are excited that many graduates are staying at UCI to begin their residency programs and many others are going to top programs across the country. Read about one of our graduates, Leonardo Alaniz, M.D., and join us in congratulating the new doctors of the Class of 2024!

LCME Spotlight
Standard 6: Competencies, Curricular Objectives and Curricular Design

LCME Standard 6 focuses on the faculty-defined competencies to be achieved by its medical students through medical education program objectives and the design of the curriculum to enable students to achieve these competencies and objectives. The UCI School of Medicine has 4 core competencies (knowledgeable, skillful, altruistic, dutiful) and 19 program objectives.

To make these competencies and program objectives known to all our faculty and residents with responsibility for teaching, supervising and/or assessing medical students, an annual training entitled “Faculty & Resident Training on SOM Learning Objectives and Key Policies” is assigned through the UC Learning Center. Many faculty and residents will begin to receive a notice to renew their training this month and it is important to complete this in a timely manner. Further, anyone at the School of Medicine can find and review the school’s educational program objectives and course/clerkship learning objectives at any time.
