EVALUATION AND GRADING

You will receive a Final Grade for each rotation of the Subinternship. Your grade will be based on the following components:

  1. A written examination, covering the core curriculum content and web-based cases in the national curriculum (reference website CDIM)
  2. A clinical performance evaluation, completed by your attending(s) and resident(s) at the end of the rotation (see below).
  3. Standardized exercises in the Clinical Skills Center.

Your evaluators have been notified to meet with you at the end of each rotation to review their evaluations with you, but it is your responsibility to set up a time to meet with them. After meeting with them at the end of the month, you should collect your evaluation and turn the evaluation and patient data log in to the Medical Education Office. You should also turn in, during the month, the mid rotation feedback form and patient data log that should be completed no later than the second week of the rotation. Again, this is your responsibility.

To achieve a Final Grade of PASS, you must meet or exceed the Minimum Passing Score on each of these components. The Subinternship Course Director determines minimum Passing Scores, as well as cut-off scores for HIGH PASS and HONORS.

Minimum Passing Scores and intended weights for each component are given below:

 
Minimum Passing
Weight
Online Examination
60%
30%
Clinical Performance Evaluation
60%
60%
OSCE Multi-Station Examination
60%
10%

A Final Grade of FAIL will be given to students whose scores on one or more of these evaluation components do not meet or exceed the Minimum Passing Scores. If you do not receive a passing score on the written examination, you will be notified as soon as possible thereafter. If you do not receive a passing score on the written examination or clinical performance evaluation you will be notified that you must meet with the Course Director to develop a satisfactory remediation plan.
