Lisa Elferink, Ph.D.

Welcome to the IMO! The Instruction Management Office (IMO) is a team of skilled and motivated professionals who assist our dedicated faculty to improve learning outcomes for our talented students.

The central responsibility of the IMO is to support courses in the first two years of the medical school curriculum. The curriculum includes basic science and organ systems courses and the Practice of Medicine (POM) courses. In addition, the IMO coordinates the Year 3 Basic Science and Human Selectives (BSHS) and oversees the Year 4 Integrated Clinical Evaluation Exercise (ICEE).


Our goal is to build the foundation to produce knowledgeable, skillful and caring physicians who have a strong sense of responsibility to the community.


Our mission is to provide the assistance, resources and educational environment to support the needs of the School of Medicine Course Directors in achieving the principles, guidelines, goals, and objectives of the School of Medicine Curriculum.
