Practice of Clinical Medicine


PCM uses a multifaceted evaluation process to assess progress in professional attitudes and demeanor, interviewing and physical diagnosis skills, and clinical reasoning. Evaluation methods include:

  • Observation of clinical skills with actual and simulated patients
  • Small group leader and preceptor evaluations
  • Evaluation of written and oral case reports
  • Quizzes and written exams

Students are encouraged to develop self-assessment skills and to participate actively in the learning process.
