The clerkship format consists of four weeks of clinical service in addition to patient simulations, PBLs, and lectures. Students will rotate at the end of the end of the first two weeks and must seek feedback of their clinical performance from faculty and housestaff they closely worked with. Students must also provide a self-assessment paragraph prior to the mid-way small group patient simulation exercise.
The participating ICU services are neurosciences intensive care unit (NSICU), cardiothoracic intensive care unit (CTICU), medical intensive care unit (MICU), and surgical intensive care unit (SICU). After two weeks, each student will switch to a different ICU service.
You are expected to work two of the six weekend days. This means you have four days off. If you work those weekend days, you can take four days during the week for interviews, assuming you don’t miss lectures, PBLs, simulations, and you must notify your team. We also grant one additional day without make up for interviews. We allow time for students to attend conferences involving their work, but only if they are presenting.
