The clinical evaluation is based on the Common Student Assessment Form v 0911 2, which has each item scored to a maximum of 50 points. The values of the completed items are then averaged to give a final score of up to 50 points. The scores from each clinical service are averaged for students at UNC. CRH and CMC students only have one score.
Oral Examination Form
The oral examination form is included. Each item is scored up to 15 points. The values for all of the items are averaged to obtain a final score of between 10-15 points.
