I was hoping people could help me out identifying the various curriculums at a few schools. If you want to add your own school in order to create a more comprehensive list, by all means.

Curriculum types I'm familiar with: traditional, organ or systems based, PBL

Case Western Reserve University


Dartmouth College


Johns Hopkins University


Ohio State University


UCLA


UCSF


University of Iowa


University of Minnesota


University of Virginia


Yale University
Case Western has PBL, I can't remember if it is organ system or not. Yale is non traditional in the sense that they don't have tests. Lol.. this is hard.

University of Iowa: Lecture based with a little bit of CBL. I believe (some) lectures are recorded and put online. Grading is percentile based (i.e. top 15% get Honors, etc.). Exams are every Friday.

University of Minnesota: Lecture based, not sure about CBL. First 6-7 weeks are solely anatomy which gets it out of the way so you have the background knowledge going into your other classes. Strictly Pass/Fail grading scheme. Lectures are posted online.
