Topic of the Month: Clinical Affiliations: The Elements, The Parties, The Point

Guest Speaker: There will be no speaker this month.

Presentation Slides: March 18, 2021 Connecting with the Secretariat Webinar

Submitted Questions Related to Clinical Affiliations

  1. We use the AAMC Uniform Clinical Training Affiliation Agreement form for all required clerkships and for electives when possible. Is it acceptable if some sites do not agree to use this form for elective courses (e.g., military placements), or should we deny the student going to that site?

Submitted General Questions

Element 6.3 Self-Directed and Life-Long Learning

  1. What is the expectation of the LCME for the unscheduled time in an average week available for medical students to engage in self-directed learning in the pre-clerkship phase of the curriculum?
  2. How the unscheduled time should be calculated? Based on 40 hours week, 80 hours week, any other way?

Element 8.8: Monitoring Student Time

  1. For this question of the DCI, how we should estimate the time students spend on reading assignments for small group cases and topic discussions?
    Note if medical students in the pre-clerkship phase of the curriculum have required activities outside of regularly-scheduled class time, such as assigned reading or online modules that include information to prepare them for in-class activities. Do not include time for regular study or review. Estimate the average amount of time students spend in such required activities and describe how this “out-of-class” time is accounted for in calculating student academic workload.
