F. Student Expectations/Requirements and Grading Policy
Students are required to keep a complete record of all clinical encounters (both procedures & diagnoses) throughout the rotation. The primary tool for entering, maintaining, and tracking accurate records will be Evalue. In order for the clerkship director to monitor and facilitate clinical experiences, it will be necessary for students to keep logbooks up to date. At a minimum, students are required to update their logbooks at least once a week. A portion of the grade grade will be determined by keeping timely records. By not sufficiently documenting achievements in the required clinical experiences, students who fail to maintain timely, complete, and accurate records of their patient encounters may fail the rotation.
G. Assignments, Exams and Tests
End of Rotation Exam
H. Attendance Policy
During the clinical years, the studentís responsibilities lie within the individual clerkship. Attendance within the clerkship is a demonstration of attitude and professional behavior. This behavior impacts all members of the healthcare team including fellow students and patients. Any absence from the clerkship may have a direct impact on student performance, the broad-spectrum clinical experience, evaluation of professionalism, overall grade and the successful completion of the clerkship.
I. Policy on Make-up Work
Delinquencies will accumulate only if the student does not have a legitimate explanation such as illness or major personal difficulty. Thus, students will be given an opportunity to explain before a penalty is assessed. The Rotation Director would render a final determination. The above delineated process describes the minimum action to be taken across clerkships. Additional requirements and consequences as determined by each clinical rotation director may apply. Failure to complete the logbook can result in grade reduction.
