Curriculum

Curricular materials for every student in the pediatric clerkship are available on the medical student website for printing, reading and disseminating as needed.

Each rotation, you as site director or coordinator, will receive for your student(s) a biography and evaluation forms specific to your site (a clerkship checklist, a 1-page short evaluation and a 4 page evaluation) that you can print out for use as paper evaluations at your site. If you are not getting this, please let Carla Salldin know.

You will also receive for each medical student a "Basic Pediatric Clerkship" manual and the required clerkship forms that are pre-populated for the student. Please give this to the students during orientation.

Final Exam

The Final examination is a 100 question test that is taken by the student using a computer at your site.  There is a lock-down browser requirement that must be installed to initiate the exam.  The exam length is 2.5 hours, unless there is a student accommodation letter from the University of Washington Disabilities office.  All exams are now on the last Thursday of the clerkship, to allow students to travel on Friday to their next clerkship site.

Grading approach for the Pediatric Core Training Experience

Using the Pediatrics Tracker

Students will log in to the Pediatric tracker, recording all completed requirements of the clerkship and uploading any documents required to be retained for records.  The Site Director will  verify completed student items by validating completion of material, verification of an uploaded document or with confirmed knowledge from another preceptor of materials covered with student. All items will be reviewed prior to grade being moved forward to clerkship directors for submission.

Grade Submission

All Preliminary Grade forms are to be submitted into the system, by 2 weeks following the end of the rotation.  Preference and goal is with in one week.
