The Comprehensive Clinical Examination

 


In the spring of the third curriculum year, all students are required to take a comprehensive clinical examination utilizing standardized patients. The purpose of this examination is to assess students' skills, not only in the cognitive areas of medicine but also in the area of patient-physician interaction. Through the use of a standardized patient exercise, students will be able to review their performances interacting with patients in order to identify strengths as well as deficiencies. Problem solving and diagnostic skills will also be assessed.

 

A passing score on this examination is required for graduation. The examination is administered prior to the fourth year to permit students with unsatisfactory performance time to remediate their deficiency. The Associate Dean for Undergraduate Medical Education will assign remediation to students, or will refer the situation to the third- and fourth-year Promotions Committee.  If a student fails the remediation, the student will be referred to the Student Academic Performance Review Committee.
