Background: Many different components factor into the final grade assigned for the internal medicine clerkship. Failure of one or more of these requires consideration of remedial measures. Purpose: To determine which assessment components are used to assign students a passing grade for the clerkship and what remediation measures are required when students do not pass a component. Methods: A national cross-sectional survey of Clerkship Directors in Internal Medicine (CDIM) institutional members was conducted in April 2011. The survey included sections on remediation, grading practices, and demographics. The authors analyzed responses using descriptive and comparative statistics. Results: Response rate was 73% (86/113). Medicine clerkships required students to pass the following components: clinical evaluations 83 (97%), NBME subject exam 76 (88%), written assignments 40 (46%), OSCE 35 (41%), in-house written exam 23 (27%), and mini-CEX 19 (22%). When students failed a component of the clerkship for the
The ACCME has joined the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and 20 other organizations as a partner in Pursuing Excellence in Clinical Learning Environments. The four-year initiative is designed to promote transformative improvement within the clinical learning environments of ACGME-accredited Sponsoring Institutions in which resident and fellow physicians pursue their formal clinical training in a specialty or subspecialty..

It is well-established that longitudinal care from a primary care physician improves quality and efficiency of patient care. Patients report higher satisfaction in the context of their care when engaged in a long-term relationship with one healthcare provider [1-3]. Better patient health outcomes have also been associated with continuity of care [2, 4]. In addition, longitudinal care promotes cost efficacy; for instance, by decreasing the number of hospital and/or emergency department visits [5-7].. Though training and experience in longitudinal care supports student interest in primary care careers [8-10], the structure of medical education makes it difficult for large numbers of students to experience providing continuity of care. Standardized patient encounters usually simulate "one-time" interactions with no opportunity for the student to consider the continuity of care that would be provided to that patient in a true outpatient setting, especially in a primary care practice. In terms of ...

Medication errors can result in harm and death, for which nurses are legally liable. The administration of medication by nurses can be improved through education and training to avoid medication errors in future. The study aimed to investigate fourth year Bachelor of Nursing students perceptions regarding the clinical learning opportunities and their competence in the administration of oral medication in a general hospital. A quantitative cross-sectional descriptive design was employed. The all-inclusive sample constituted 176 fourth year Bachelor of Nursing students. A total of 125 respondents completed the self- report questionnaires. Descriptive statistics were produced through data processing and univariate and bivariate analysis using of SPSS version 22.

This chapter was reproduced from the Emergency Medicine Clerkship Primer, 2008, Chapter 11, with the permission of the Editor, for ease of viewing on mobile devices.. While focusing on your "plan of action" (diagnostic evaluation and therapeutic intervention), it is necessary to realize that in many emergency department patient encounters, care is provided in a roundabout fashion. Because of the urgency of patient presentations, we do not always have the luxury of providing care in a structured manner the same way as in a low-acuity outpatient setting. Almost every shift, we evaluate patients with head trauma, acute respiratory distress, altered mental status, and many other complaints that require the care provider to make certain critical decisions early on in the evaluation, many times before a comprehensive H&PE is completed.. The evaluation of a "sick or potentially sick" patient cannot be performed in series; care must be provided in a parallel fashion. At times, the ordering of select ...

Internal Medicine is the branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the internal organ systems. The internists purview is all adult illness that is non-surgical, ranging from primary care and health promotion issues to the management of complex, multisystem disease. Perhaps the skill that most defines an internist is the ability to synthesize and organize the often voluminous amount of medical data that the modern health care system generates. An internist is then able to document and present this refined information in a complete, concise and coherent fashion.. It is one of the major goals of the UNC Medicine Inpatient Clerkship that all students will become adept at gathering, synthesizing and documenting the information that is important for the care of their patients. As a tool to teach this critical aspect of medicine, students are required to complete and submit to the clerkship office five (5) detailed H&Ps. These H&Ps should include a problem list, ...

Without question, though, there are some very intelligent people who are not justly served by the current clerkship application process. As observers of recent Supreme Court clerkship hiring may have noted, a few schools and feeder judges predominate. But Lithwicks proposal will replace the weight given to feeder judges with even more weight given to schools, and perhaps to professors within those schools. People lucky enough to be able to ingratiate themselves to a prominent professor or former colleague of the Supremes (most of them have taught and presumably retain relationships with faculty) will have an advantage; applicants from other law schools will be left out in the cold. The current clerkship process, which permits multiple clerkships, allows candidates from less well-known schools to distinguish themselves. Under the regime Lithwick proposes, such persons would probably be passed over in favor of yet another Yale or Harvard student ...

A rising second year medical student read some of my posts and wrote me a kind note asking if I would write something for students. I taught students and ran surgical clerkships at community teaching hospitals for my entire career until about 19 months ago. I also was prompted to address this subject after reading a recent New York Times story about a new admissions policy at Mt. Sinai Medical School. The school is accepting some students who are majoring in the humanities and are not required to take the usual science courses or the MCAT. In the words of one of the participants in the program: "I didnt want to waste a class on physics, or waste a class on orgo [organic chemistry]. The social determinants of health are so much more pervasive than the immediate biology of it." I agree that possibly "orgo" and probably physics are not necessarily essential for medical school applicants. But I think these courses are still relevant because they assess ones ability to think. According to the ...

Background: Outpatient teaching models such as the One-Minute Preceptor direct trainees to independently commit to clinical decisions before the preceptor gives feedback. Comparing trainee decisions to those of the preceptor could yield insight into trainee decision-making.. Objective: To determine whether Trainee-Preceptor decision concordance, operationalized as a rating scale form, reflects trainee clinical decision-making ability to a measurable extent.. Design/Methods: We recruited a convenience sample of residents and students rotating in the PED. A 2-sided form had the same 7 clinical decisions on each side: whether to perform blood, urine, spinal fluid tests, imaging, IV fluids, antibiotics, or a consult. The rating choices were: Definitely Not, Probably Not, Probably Would or Definitely Would. Trainees rated each decision after seeing a patient, but before presenting to the preceptor, who, after evaluating the patient, rated the same 7 decisions on the 2nd side of the form. The ...
