Clerkship Directors Bootcamp
There are many skills required of EM clerkship directors (CDs), such as developing a curriculum that covers learning objectives, training residents and faculty to reliably assess students, and providing sound career advice. CDs are also beholden to many stakeholders, including the medical school, the department, and students as learners and advisees. Additionally, as part of their role, CDs are responsible for maintaining and documenting compliance with accreditation standards, especially during Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) visits. This workshop will address vital skills for running a successful clerkship and how to navigate common pitfalls.
