The faculty of a medical school define the types of patients and clinical conditions that medical students are required to encounter, the skills to be performed by medical students, the appropriate clinical settings for these experiences, and the expected levels of medical student responsibilities. (LCME 6.2)
A medical school must also have in place a system with central oversight that monitors and ensures completion by all medical students of required clinical experiences in the medical education program and remedies any identified gaps. (LCME 8.6)
As logging and tracking of these patient encounters is completed, the data is viewable by students and faculty. Students can track their progress related to clerkship learning objectives and ensure that the clerkship's objectives are being met. This system also helps ensure that all students encounter the specific diagnoses and procedures needed to meet the objectives of the overall clinical education program.
