End of the rotation evaluation forms are solicited from both residents (if applicable) and faculty and are given equal weight. Evaluation forms are weighted by “amount of time spent” with the student as stated by the preceptor. Evaluation requests are sent to preceptors at the end of the rotation. When all performance evaluations have been completed, the numeric scores are averaged and used to determine the total number of points earned for clinical evaluations.
To prepare for this assessment, students receive a sample evaluation form in the clerkship orientation packet at the beginning of the rotation, and this form describes the evaluation criteria that will be used to evaluate their performance.
