Educational Support Services

Educational Support Services (formerly, the Teaching Office) is a unit within the Office of Medical Education that manages the course work and online schedules in Canvas for the first and second year medical college students. The group also administers exams and processes the grades using ExamSoft, a computer-based testing software program. As part of the exam administration procedure, the office arranges for and manages the proctors. The office also assigns first and second year students’ microscopes and lockers at the beginning of each academic year.

The Teaching Office provides other services and important information relevant to didactic studies, as well. It supports the faculty by loading material to the Canvas course pages, scheduling lectures, and arranging group conferences and labs. Additionally, the office assists with various projects during the course of year, particularly those services needed to ensure the success of quite diverse elective programs.

This office is responsible for making all arrangements for, and administering, a USMLE Step 1 CBE exam, scheduled near the end of the students’ second year. The office also supervises the preparation, distribution, and administering of the NBME end-of-clerkship exams for third and fourth year students.

The goals of the office are to ensure that:

1)      medical college students have the necessary material and resources they need for the College’s curriculum;

2)      the faculty have appropriate support to ensure timely distribution of course material to the students; and

3)      the classrooms are equipped with the essential tools to enhance the learning experience.
