CI Keywords

Updated on

The AAMC has consolidated the Curriculum Inventory (CI) report and introduced the SCOPE Survey in November 2023. We will continue to support you during this transition. If you have questions, please feel free to contact our Help Desk.

CI Keywords (i.e. Themes in Leo) are used to indicate content taught in an Event or Course. 

Keywords are not currently required as part of the CI Report. However, you can still submit Keyword data by utilizing Themes in Leo. The Theme list is developed on an institutional basis and you can opt-in all or only certain Themes to be included as Keywords. There is also an official list of CI Keywords from the AAMC, which you can access here. For more information on CI Keywords, please visit the AAMC's Building a Curriculum Inventory: Keywords.

CI Keyword Reporting

The AAMC advises that Keywords (i.e. Themes in Leo) be used to track modifications made in the curriculum due to COVID-19. The COVID-19 related keywords from the AAMC are: COVID-19 Virtual, COVID-19 Altered and COVID-19 Added. For more information and definitions, please see the AAMC CI newsletter.

To add these Keywords in your CI report

  1. Select Add New Theme
  2. Enter Theme Name
  3. Click Include in CI
  4. Select Save Record

Themes (i.e. CI Keywords) that you have checked to Include in CI (#3 above) will show as Keywords on your CI Preview Report in Leo (Admin Bar > CURRICULUM MAPPING > Curriculum Inventory > Reports > Preview) as well as be included in the official CI Verification Report.

For more information regarding Themes, please see: Themes.

If your curricular data is incomplete due to COVID changes,  then the AAMC requests that you do not include substantially altered courses that are not accurate reflections of your curriculum in the CI report. This will mean excluding those courses from the Sequence Blocks in order to provide accurate data.
