Dr. Overman has been extensively involved with the innovations to our medical school curriculum as well as the residency curriculum. She introduced “flipped classroom” teaching into the noon conference and didactic schedule into the residency curriculum. She has been a member of the Wright Curriculum Steering Committee which has led the transformation to a new curriculum built upon the principles of effective learning and moving to a lecture-free curriculum. In her role as Director of Foundations she has been at the forefront of the implementation of the curriculum during the first two years of medical school, and due to her Clerkship Director responsibilities, she has been able to help implement similar changes into the Clerkship.
