Key Takeaway: Undergoing a curriculum transformation can be incredibly rewarding—and incredibly arduous. In particular, there can be significant strain on staff and faculty resources. As a result, it is critical to think about what needs to be done, how it should be done, and what is actually reasonable, given the available resources. Compromise is essential.
