I include the clinical activities because they have objectives and those objectives are ultimately mapped up to PCRS.  If I don't include those clinical experiences than I don't think I am getting an accurate picture of how each competency is supported by our full curriculum.

Hi everyone,

Similar question on item 2-  We were not going to include clinical teaching but rather only didactics, and I had reasoned this because the column right before it on the report provides the number of weeks. Assuming students are on rotation full-time, I thought it was more useful to see how much time is actually spent on didactics, and not specifically rounding or other patient encounters. It seems the real problem is that we do not have a definition list to accompany these questions. Am I thinking about this all wrong?

On item 1, if your non-clinical activity is not explicitly part of an integrated/longitudinal clerkship experience, I would suspect you want to report it as course rather than clerkship. Of course, as Terri pointed out at the vendor meeting, a clerkship is a clerkship if you say it is a clerkship….

On item 2, I’d be interested in hearing the interpretation of others, but from where I am standing we take that to mean all methods, exclusive of independent/self-directed learning.

Would really appreciate input on:

1.     For 3rd or 4th year curriculum offerings, [non clinical in nature = e.g., Career Exploration III] do you report those under courses or clerkships?

2.     For the heading:   Typical hours / week formal instruction** = I’ve been asked to clarify whether this includes all instruction or is just didactic hours only. I’m thinking it would be all instructional methods, but couldn’t locate a definition within the guides / glossary of terms.

Thanks in advance…
