Curriculum refers to the complete range of student experiences to which they will be exposed in the educational process. For any curriculum, communicability and transparency have been regarded as the crucial aspects. An extensive search of all materials related to the topic was carried out in the PubMed search engine, and a total of six articles were selected based upon the suitability with the current review objectives and analyzed. Curriculum mapping has been identified as the method to ensure communicability and transparency, but it also plays an important role in bridging the gaps between the declared, taught, and tested curriculum. The mapping helps establish a relationship between various components of the curriculum and is the key strategy to ascertain the accomplishment of learning objectives or outcomes formulated for any curriculum. In conclusion, the process of curriculum mapping in the field of medical education has been acknowledged as an effective strategy to facilitate evaluation, rapid improvement, and evolution of the curriculum and thus improve the educational outcomes.
