18 Philosophy of Program Governance Our philosophy of governance is inclusive and progressive. Residents are included on the Curriculum Committee and on the ROC (policy committee). They have equal voting power with the faculty and Program Director. We regularly survey residents about every aspect of the Program including rotations, faculty, teaching, educational resources, and resident satisfaction.
19 Curriculum Development and Oversight The Curriculum Committee reviews every aspect of the curriculum on a regular basis: - clinical rotations - conferences - goals and materials Residents have creative input into the Committee, are members of the Committee and participate on a regular basis. Many enhancements emanate from residents suggestions or requests.

Innovative Morning Report at the VA and Afternoon Report at UCI Teaching Rounds on all inpatient rotations. Rotation-based, web-based curricular outlines are available on our website.
