Required Assignments

Case-Based Conferences (CBCs)

Case-Based Conferences (CBCs) are one of the educational mainstays of our clerkship. Historically, medical students have been very enthusiastic about this learning method. Rather than present information in a lecture format, we have small group sessions led by faculty. The sessions are case-based and are designed to be interactive. Our goal as facilitators is to help you teach one another. We expect you to prepare for them and to be ready to discuss the cases and demonstrate clinical reasoning. The cases have been produced by  APGO and are a part of the Medical Student Educational Objectives, 10th Edition. The sessions typically occur every day at noon, and 4:00 p.m, however, can be at another time based on the faculty member’s availability.

Your CBC schedule is posted in Canvas in your calendar. You may download the calendar to your phone to use in outlook. If you need help, please ask Heather Ellis.

Skills and Achievements Form

The Skills and Achievements form is a list of skills and accomplishments we expect you to achieve during the clerkship. We recommend that you keep a copy in your white coat pocket at all times. As you achieve these skills or observe these procedures, you must have the supervising resident or faculty initial and date the form to certify your accomplishment or competency. Failure to complete all attainable activities may result in a lower evaluation for the procedural and/or professionalism competencies. Note: This information must be entered into your online patient logs.

APRN Clinics, PA Clinics, Genetics, and Shadowing a RN in Labor and Delivery Forms

We strive to obtain a 360-degree evaluation of your performance in order to most accurately and fairly assess your performance during the clerkship. Therefore, you are expected to turn in paper evaluation forms to your educators when you are assigned to the following activities: APRN clinics, PA Clinics, Genetics, and RN Nurse Shadowing in both Gainesville and Jacksonville. You should print the form before one of these assignments. Include the date, your name, your assignment, and your evaluators name. At the conclusion of the assignment, please give the evaluation form to your educator. They will fill out an evaluation and either place it in a folder or give it back to you. The evaluations that are not given back to you will get faxed or emailed to Heather  (Nurse Shadowing in Jacksonville will give you the evaluation to turn in when you return to Gainesville).
