Students will keep a log of patients seen during the block and will enter them on a daily basis into the Excel Logger. This helps you to keep track of your progress in seeing the required signs, symptoms, clinical problems, and physical exam competencies. Bring the Logger data to your mid-course meeting and use the data when you meet.
NOTE: Submit an electronic copy of your Excel Logger file to the respective AAC or RCC Block Coordinator after each 4-week block.
The objective of the Direct Observation Form is for your preceptor to describe what they have observed as you perform your clinical work. During the clerkships, a direct observation form should be completed weekly. (4 during Rural & Community Care and 4 during Adult Ambulatory Care) These observations can be very brief. These can comment/give feedback on any the part of the clinical encounter or case presentation observed using R.I.M.E.
The R.I.M.E. behaviors and comments will provide feedback to you and help you improve over time. Your preceptor will give the Direct Observation Form back to you and you are responsible for returning 4 forms in each clerkship to the student coordinator.
