Students will be evaluated at least weekly on clinical skills and professionalism using the On-the-Fly evaluation. All On-the-Fly evaluations are compiled by the clerkship to then create a summative evaluation. Students must also pass a clinical exam that includes two cases. One case includes interviewing a standarized patient followed by a computerized clinical competency exam (CCX) which also includes a diagnosis justification (DxJ). The second case focuses on the student's ability to complete a mental status exam (MSE). The student views a recorded pateint interview and then gets fifteen minutes to type up an MSE on the patient.
Your final evaluation is determined by the following components:
- Clinical Exams-If a student fails one of the two exams, he/she will remediate a case. If the student fails the case on the second attempt, the Department of Psychiatry will recommend a remediation plan to the Student Progress Committee.
- Clinical Evaluations-Must have overall satisfactory evaluations.
- Non-cognitive-Any early concern forms may impact your final evaluation.
