Student Progress & Evaluation
Evaluation of a student’s progress is ongoing during clinical rotations. Students track their clinical hours and patient encounters in a software program called E*Value. In addition, a clinical faculty evaluator, will complete a site visit at least once during the student’s rotation. During this time the faculty will want to observe the student interacting with patients to ensure the student is demonstrating safe and appropriate care. If time allows, evaluators like to meet briefly with preceptors to discuss student performance and identify any areas of concern. In addition, clinical evaluators will be following up with you by e-mail or phone to ensure the student is progressing during the course of the rotation.
Preceptors are also asked to complete a written evaluation of the student at the completion of the rotation.
