The Masterplan for the Otago Medical Course of the Future aims to set the vision and direction of the medical course and highlights the many exciting changes and improvements that are taking place to enhance the quality of the Otago medical programme throughout the five years of the degree. It is aimed to guide those involved in designing, improving and delivering the course and should be referred to when considering changes. The first Masterplan was revised by the MB ChB Curriculum Committee (MCC) and endorsed by the OMS Executive following a review of the document and feedback from staff and student representatives. The Masterplan will be reviewed again in 2018.
