The CAM curriculum at UTMB was developed systematically, structured around the standard elements of a curriculum: Goals, Needs, Objectives, Methods, and Evaluation, using the GNOME model. Four core goals are included, as seen in the Brief Overview of the Longitudinal CAM Curriculum. Since a longitudinal curriculum was planned, learning objectives were developed for each learner level and activity, merging with existing objectives for the course if available. To facilitate the integration of CAM content into existing curricula, assessments of the CAM education needs and interests of key groups of learners was undertaken. For each learning activity, a suitable evaluation method was developed.
