16 Special Strategies (it really doesnt matter!) However, if you want……… Dont schedule hard rotations back to back (eg. surgery, internal medicine, OB) Dont schedule things you think you are interested in first or last

17 Why do Neuroscience Clerkship in Year 3 instead of Year 4? If you think you might be interested in neurology or neurosurgery as a career choice If you want elective time to try out other specialties that you dont see in Year 3 (eg. Radiology, Surgical specialties, Pathology, etc. but NOT emed) If you need more vacation time in year 3 for something (eg. Weddings, babies, etc.)

18 Disadvantages of Doing Neuroscience in Year 3 You commit yourself to an 8wk clerkship during the 4 th year that must be completed by Jan/Feb of your senior year It could clutter up important parts of Year 4 (eg. Specialty surveying, application period, extramural electives, interviewing, board study, etc.)

19 POM III/IV POM III is composed of 6 full day sessions during the year, one during each clerkship block. POM III/IV requires a research project – start in Year III – finish at time of POM IV in Year IV (March)

20 The EEEEEs E-value – An electronic program designed for multiple purposes including tracking the diagnosis of patients you are seeing and procedures you are performing – An LCME requirement! Evaluations of Clerkships – Provides invaluable information – Has resulted in many curricular changes over the years Evaluations of Students – Shelf exams/Practical exams/quizzes – Faculty evaluations

21 Clerkship Evaluation Form Cognitive Skills Clinical Skills Information Presentation Professionalism – Honesty/Integrity – Responsibility/Reliability/Dependability – Teamwork – Empathy – Commitment to Competence and Excellence – Respect for Patients Global Rating
