KU School of Medicine Curriculum
The goal of the ACE (Active, Competency-based, and Excellence-driven) curriculum is to graduate physicians focused on improving the health and well-being of Kansans and the global community. To meet this goal, physicians trained in the ACE curriculum emerge as life-long learners who quickly adapt to continuous changes in the practice of medicine brought about by scientific and clinical discoveries. Our physicians are trained to understand the healthcare systems that influence patient care and how to engage those systems to better serve those who seek help. Graduates of the ACE curriculum know that much of medicine requires working in inter-disciplinary teams employing complex technology, but that the physician-patient relationship remains the foundation of healing. From individuals to communities to populations, ACE-trained physicians are given the tools to seek better understanding of health and disease and to advance the health of all.
