  • Patient Care
  • Medical Knowledge
  • Practice Based Learning and Improvement
  • Interpersonal and Communication Skills

  • Systems-Based Practice
  • Each Monday during the rotation, please email a list of attendings and residents that you worked with the previous week to Kari Corker. She will send evaluation emails to these attendings.

End of Rotation Exam:
The end of rotation exam is a proctored online test that will be taken on the last day of the rotation. Details will be provided at the orientation session at the start of your rotation.

You will be graded on the following:

  • Weekly conference attendance
  • Punctuality
  • Demonstrated work ethic
  • Interaction with office staff, nurses, residents and attendings
  • Turning in all required documents in a timely manner

Rotation Card:
This is a pocket-sized card that will be carried with you throughout your rotation. It has procedures as well as discussion objectives that you will need to have an attending or resident sign off on. Your goal should be to complete 80% of the discussion objectives and all of the required procedures. Required procedures are those that have a number and the word "min" beside them. For example, "IV starts 4 min" means that you should start at least 4 IV's during the month.
