Clinical and Competencies Skills IV

This block contains a single semester-long module of clinical learning: The Clinical and Competencies Skills IV module creates awareness of clinical themes, and introduces students to a variety of non-lecture-based learning. Themes emphasized are clinical skills, patient interviewing skills and linkage of SPIRIT competency classroom learning to clinical experience. Hospital visits including workups, and an emphasis on professionalism and skills learning create a basis for learning in this module. Scheduled sessions are designed to encourage student integration of lecture-based pre-clinical learning with hospital experiences of the semester 4 curriculum. Software and classroom technologies are utilized to assist with evaluation during some components of the module (WebSPTM and TurnitinTM).
