Important Meetings - Dates and Times

Below are the meeting dates for Temerty Faculty of Medicine (TFOM) governance committee related to education (i.e. divisional governance) for the 2023/24 academic year.   These are organized by cycles. Each cycle represents a divisional governance path and outlines the sequential approval process. Please note the departmental deadlines to submit governance forms. These deadlines ensure Graduate Curriculum Committee (GCC) members have at least 7 working days to review these curriculum changes prior to the GCC meeting.

Departments are encouraged to contact the Graduate Affairs Officer to discuss minor modifications.  Minor Modifications are typically seen at the GCC and the TFOM Education Committee. 

Departments wishing to submit Major Modifications (i.e., significant changes to a degree program) must consult the Graduate Affairs Officer as soon as possible.  Typically, these require extensive consultation from several Provostial offices. After the first initial consultation with GLSE, a timeframe, with deliverables and deadlines are customized based on the scope of the Major Modification. Major Modifications are typically seen at the GCC, TFOM Education Committee and Faculty Council. 

Departments wishing to create a new program or close an existing program must contact the Graduate Affairs Officer as soon as possible. 

Please direct questions to Rachel Zulla, Graduate Affairs Officer (
