There are multiple pathways to the same academic performance outcomes - every learner is unique and there is no 'one-size fits all' approach to academic success.
Given the variation and variety of pathways, the Medical School developed a Content, Questions and Assessment model (C-Q-A) to guide learners in a way that honors everyone's unique style and needs, while also providing needed feedback on progress and identifying gaps in performance. The C-Q-A process applies to all levels of training from year 1 midterms to the series of USMLE Step exams.
