Submitted General Questions
- Do the principles in the white paper still apply if only one of the accredited schools has students participating in required clinical experiences at the site, while the other’s students are limited to elective rotations?
- Although the white paper specifically mentions simultaneous supervision of students from more than one LCME-accredited program, are there special considerations schools should make when faculty will be supervising interprofessional groups of students involving different health professions programs?
- Are volunteer physicians, who supervise clinical students within our affiliated hospital sites, required to have SOM faculty appointments?
- Is it ok for full-time faculty that are employed by affiliate hospitals to have different expectations (e.g., not be expected to participate in governance committees)? If they have different expectations, can they still be considered full-time faculty? When completing the DCI, can we stratify the full-time faculty column into med school employed and affiliate hospital employed?
