Reflection Paper

All students are required to write a 1 page reflection paper to be turned in electronically no later than at the time of the final exam.  It should be 1 page (i.e. about 2-3 paragraphs) and can be double spaced.  You are to reflect on how the ED experience interplays with social justice and the final sentence should conclude with a statement about your personal commitment to the service of others in the future. Please email it to Renata at rbarylo@luc.edu by the end of the clerkship.

The reflection process should be guided by the RFLCT acronym:
R: Recall: an experience. Spend 5 minutes before writing to contemplate the experience.
F: Formulate:  a summary. Include key "facts of the case" and identify feelings about experience.
L Learn: from the successes and shortcomings you experienced; think about your role in the encounter (who am I?), how it shapes who you are becoming, and is it the type of physician you want to be?
C: Change by identifying one area for growth, development, and improvement. It may focus on something that did not go well or building on a strength.
T: Transition with a sense of gratitude for this learning opportunity and something you can build on as your formation as a physician, make a tangible pledge to move forward
